Iraqi Kurdistan demonstrations..American concern over reports of gas and lead use

The way in which the Kurdish security forces deal with the demonstrations in the city of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdistan region of Iraq raises international concern, after reports of violence.


Washington is “concerned by reports of the use of tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters and the arrests of journalists, civil society activists, and members of parliament in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq during and before the protests, in Sulaymaniyah,” said U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Elena Romanovsky.
