Thousands of mourners gathered in the Iraqi city of Fallujah at the funerals of Sunni protesters killed by army troops a day earlier.

The funeral processions were followed by renewed protests against Iraq's Shia-led government.

On Friday, five people were shot dead and dozens more were wounded when the army opened fire on a protest.

Iraqi Sunnis, who held power under Saddam Hussein, accuse the government of discriminating against them.
