Iraqi Sunni Fallujah funerals draw thousands

Sunday, 27 January 2013 - 8:05


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.
