Pro-Sadr protesters stormed the Iraqi parliament building on Saturday for the second time in less than a week.

This came after protesters managed to enter the fortified “Green Zone” in central Baghdad, which includes government institutions and foreign embassies.

On Wednesday, thousands of protesters briefly stormed the parliament building, denouncing “Sadr’s political opponents’ candidate to head the government.”
