2:11 pm
well as an end to corruption let's cross live to baghdad and speak to her about death toll continues to climb higher mode according to the human rights commission in the country. you know that's right and 1st let me start by mentioning that we are hearing from eyewitnesses that there are renewed clashes that are going on in an area on and around sinek bridge this is one of the bridges that leads from the area close to your square which is the epicenter of the protests here and by that that 2 other area other parts of the other heavily fortified parts like the green zone and government installations and these these protesters that were killed according to eyewitnesses on saturday a saturday evening that happened because you had to add up the security forces trying to clear those areas likes in that bridge like other bridges and to push the protesters from those areas that lead to other parts of it that back to square
2:12 pm
tension we're told right now is rising and people are concerned there could be more clashes throughout the day in that violence that occurred yesterday over 100 people were injured now i should also mention to you there has been a statement that has been released just today by amnesty international they are urging it off the authorities to immediately rein in security forces after these protesters were killed on saturday let me just read you one sentence from the statement it says but dead and busted i have seen yet more bloody days of excessive force meted out against protesters and off the authorities must immediately order and into this relentless unlawful use of lethal force of course we should also mention that the government here officials have denied that any protesters were killed in bucket on saturday all that being said there are also still protests and clashes we were told going on in busta also in asia and also in nasiriyah which is south of baghdad we're told that there have been clashes throughout the day there are protesters that are taking up space and sitting in front of the education

building we are basically essentially right now waiting to find out if there's going to be any more violence throughout the day as you mentioned the protesters even though they have been targeted and they continue to say they are determined to come out day. after day that they want to ensure that their demands get met now you did have these statements that emerged from the prime minister's office that i've been mighty yesterday in which he promised that there would be some electoral reform and that all that would be made clear in the coming days also one interesting development you know the internet has been blocked several days the past few weeks over and over again in baghdad and other parts of iraq well yesterday just about a half an hour or so after the statement emerged from the prime minister you had the internet restored in about an hour after that it was cut again today it is running but it is a rather much slower speed than it usually is so this is interesting because you had the prime minister mentioned yesterday in his statement that the internet had
2:14 pm
been blocked and that they were doing that because social media platforms had been used to incite violence here the fact that the internet keeps getting cut is one thing that's really irritated the demonstrators here and it's another reason they say they continue to come out because they don't believe the government is working for them or taking their demands seriously at all that in ok and how much jim thank you very much for that update from baghdad it's still ahead in just a moment on all the syria saudi aramco reveals details of its plans to sell shares highlighted risks including include terrorism and armed conflict 50 years and counting what's behind the global success of the children's show sesame street. hello welcome to another look at the international forecast was not looking too bad across japan at the moment we have got some right in the forecast that's moving out
