BAGHDAD— Hundreds of Iraqis on Monday rallied in central Baghdad
against corruption and a lack of government services.
Many of the demonstrators carried banners that bore the image of a broken red heart, alluding to
the fact that the protest took place on Valentine's Day.
The gatherings in Iraq have been small in scale, although organizers are promising a much larger event on Feb. 25.
The Iraqis are calling for government reforms and more jobs.
