raqi soldiers killed four people after opening fire on an anti-government protest in an attempt to disperse it, reports AFP. Troops clashed with thousands of Sunni Muslims in Falluja, protesting against Iraq’s Shiite PM Nuri al-Maliki.
Sunni activists gathered in the western city of Falluja to call for the resignation of PM al-Maliki in a protest dubbed the "Friday of No Retreat." Security forces initially fired shots in the air to disperse the crowds when protesters pelted them with stones, but later troops fired on activists who set a military vehicle on fire, reported Reuters.
The Sunni-majority city of Falluja has been a hub for anti-government protests recently, with demonstrators decrying government marginalization of their minority group.
