BASRA: Iraq authorities on Saturday lifted a curfew in the crisis-hit southern city of Basra, where 12 protesters were killed this week in clashes with security forces.
Basra has been rocked by protests since Tuesday after the hospitalization of 30,000 people who had drunk polluted water, in the southern oil-rich region where residents have for weeks complained of water and electricity shortages, corruption among officials and unemployment.
