Iraq – In Basra, demonstrators relinquished
control of a road leading to the Umm Qasr port. Dozens of protestors had blocked passage to the port two days ago but returned control of the road when
authorities promised to create up to 75 jobs. Also in the southern city, an Italian logistics manager was shot while trying to withdraw money. The shooting is believed to be a simple robbery. A sniper, however, killed a police colonel and wounded a journalist.
