Anti-government protests continue in Iraq

Continuing protests by Sunni Muslims who say they are discriminated against by Shia-led government.

    Iraq has seen three weeks of mass protests against the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

    The Shia-dominated government is accused of using anti-terrorism laws to target the country's Sunni minority. 

    Tens of thousands of people continue to protest in numerous cities, including Ramadi, Samara and Mosul.
