    Thousands of people are expected to turn up after Friday prayers for more anti-government protests in Iraq.

    Many will reach the demonstrations by tuk-tuk, a common form of transport across many Iraqi cities.

    But in Baghdad, many tuk-tuk drivers who have been volunteering their services say they are facing attacks.
