Iraqi security forces clash with demonstrators as 'two protesters are killed'.

IRAQI security forces shot dead two protesters in the southern city of Nassiriya on Wednesday (December 7) after using live ammunition to disperse an anti-government protest, police and medical sources told Reuters.

At least 16 protesters were wounded, mainly by live bullets, when security forces attempted to move them away from bridges and a central square, the sources said.

Police said protesters threw stones at security forces, wounding at least 11. A Reuters witness said crowds subsequently gathered outside a hospital morgue, demanding the release of the two bodies.
