Hundreds of demonstrators flocked to Tahrir Square in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Friday, 8/11/2019, amid tight security measures by Iraqi forces.


After the end of Friday prayers in Baghdad, the security forces have taken strict security measures in the center of the capital in anticipation of the launch of demonstration in Tahrir Square, which the demonstrators take as the center for their demonstrations.


The Iraqi capital Baghdad and many of Iraq's provinces in the center and south of the country has seen large protests since the beginning of last October, which demand the elimination of corruption, and overthrow the government.
