2/25/2011 2:27 PM

WASSIT / Aswat al-Iraq: Hundreds of citizens in Kut staged on Friday a massive demonstration in front of the local council, calling for better services and hold corrupt officials accountable.
“The gathering, most of them are young men, raised banners accusing officials of stealing oil revenues and criticizing bad services in the province,” Fadel Aanied, a protestor, told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
“They also chanted slogans against Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and against Lawmaker Haydar al-Abadi, who described them as rioters,” he noted.
Kut, the capital of Wassit, is 180 km southeast of Baghdad.
