    Demonstrations in Iraq have spread to the capital Baghdad.

    Although a smaller gathering than seen in the last 2 weeks in the south of Iraq, a significant number of protesters in the capital have been demanding change.

    "Injustice and lack of job opportunities" are at the top of their demands.
