August 26, 2018 | Middle East | No Comments|
People have been protesting in the Iraqi city of Basra after hundreds fell ill after drinking contaminated water.
Iraq’s government is investigating what caused this latest outbreak in Iraq‘s second-largest city.
Residents in oil-rich Basra have been angry over the last few months because of a lack of basic services and failing infrastructure and now what is coming out of their water tanks has brought them back to the streets in protest.
