A Mixed Bag


"So far, Iraqis have held some small-scale protests around the country - occasionally punctuated by violent clashes between security and demonstrators - demanding better public services, more assistance for widows and orphans and greater protection for human rights. But unlike protests in the wider Middle East, they have generally not called for a complete change in government. Iraq is one of the few countries in the region where officials are democratically elected."
