At least 100 killed and 5,500 wounded in the past six days of protests in Iraq against Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi’s government and a political elite that protesters say is corrupt and out of touch.

A statement by the Iraqi Independent High Commission for Human Rights (IHCHR), said the clashes in the past six days between the security forces and the demonstrators resulted in the death of 100 and the injury of 5,500 demonstrators and security forces.
