SULAIMANIYA / Aswat al-Iraq: The security forces, the anti-riot police and Peshmerga forces, have broken through a demonstration heading towards the city’s main court building, in north Iraq’s Kurdish city of Sulaimaniya city on Tuesday, eyewitnesses said.

“Large forces, representing the security, anti-mob and Peshmerga, have broken through a demonstration, heading towards the city’s main court, in order to prevent them launch a sit-in demonstration in front the court’s building,” the eyewitnesses told Aswat al-Iraq reporter in the city.

They added that the said forces had arrested a number of demonstrators, including some activists.

Clashes took place between the security forces and demonstrators in Saray Square in central Sulaimaniya early in the day, where the demonstrators had launched a sit-in demonstration since Feb.
