Iran consulate torched

 

BAGHDAD: Iraqi protesters torched the Iranian consulate in the holy city of Najaf on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) in a dramatic escalation of anti-government demonstrations that have left more than 350 people dead.Tall flames and thick clouds of smoke rose from the entrance of the consulate in the southern city, Agence France-Presse’s correspondent there said. “Victory to Iraq!” and “Iran out!” protesters chanted, outraged at the country they blame for propping up a government they’ve been demonstrating against for nearly two months.
