ARBIL - At least 90 people were wounded in a second straight day of clashes between protesters and security forces in the northern Iraqi city of Sulaimaniya on Monday, police and medical sources said.

Popular discontent in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region has been directed at a regional government dominated for decades by two political parties whose former guerrilla armies have been converted into security forces.

Security forces fired shots and used tear gas to try to disperse protesters, wounding 29, while 61 policemen were injured by stones and other objects hurled at them, police and health officials said.

At least 35 people were hurt a day earlier in Sulaimaniya, the region's second largest city and the hub of protests continuing since February.
