As a precautionary measure, a large number of security forces and riot police have been deployed in the Iraqi capital on Wednesday. Roads leading to a major central square that witnessed the violent confrontation between protesters and the police on Tuesday have been closed. Two people were killed and more than 200 people were injured when police opened fire with live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas at anti-government protesters in Baghdad.
