Iraq: Anti-govt tent protest continues outside Baghdad's Green Zone

Hundreds of protesters continued to erect tents and protest peacefully just outside Baghdad’s Green Zone on Monday.
The participants began the sit-in protest in front of the Green Zone on March 19, 2015, after the prominent Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr called on his supporters to demand government reforms to fight corruption and the growth of the bureaucracy.
The Green Zone hosts the parliament, the presidential mansion, the country's top courts, the US embassy and other governmental buildings. The area became known as the Green Zone after the US invasion in 2003, when access to the public was strictly forbidden.
