SULAIMANI – Two protesters were killed and more than two dozen others wounded in Baghdad on Sunday (November 3) as protests continued for a tenth straight day in central and southern Iraq.

Eager to see concrete proposals to change the country's governance system, protest organizers said several days ago that they would be ready to hear proposals for reform in a round-table setting when Prime Minister Adil Abdul stepped down and President Barham Salih called early elections. The latter said on Sunday that he hoped to introduce a new draft electoral law soon.

More than 250 people have been killed since the protests began on October 1, the vast majority of whom were protesters. Thousands have been injured.
