Description

The Iraqi prime minister says the situation is under control after thousands of protesters broke into Baghdad’s heavily-fortified Green Zone and stormed the parliament. Haider al-Abadi said security forces have brought the situation under control in the Iraqi capital. He urged the protesters to demonstrate peacefully without damaging state institutions. Abadi was set to appear before parliament on Saturday to seek approval for the remaining candidates in his new cabinet. The lawmakers failed to reach a quorum and the session was postponed until next week. The delay triggered public protests and forced President Fuad Masum to call for an emergency session of political leaders on Sunday.
