Protesters who stormed Baghdad’s Green Zone retreated Sunday but organizers say the challenge to Iraq’s leadership isn’t over yet.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of followers of Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr broke into Parliament on Saturday, waving Iraqi flags, ransacking rooms and sitting at lawmakers’ desk while gesturing at cameras that captured the scene.
“The cowards ran away,” they chanted, referring to Parliament members who had gathered there earlier. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi had been scheduled to announce a new Cabinet on Saturday but didn’t because of lack of a quorum.
Sunday, Abadi urged authorities to find and prosecute anyone who attacked security forces, members of Parliament and citizens or who destroyed public property, state-run Al-Iraqiya TV reported.
