Meanwhile, in Liberated Iraq

Thousands of Sunni protesters have gathered for protests in Iraq's Anbar province, complaining of marginalisation by the Shia-led government.


Tribal leaders and political activists had called for protests in Fallujah in solidarity with seven young men killed in clashes between government forces and protesters in the city last week.


Meanwhile, an al-Qaeda-affiliated group called on Sunnis to take up arms against the government.
