Angry Iraqis blocking the Kerkuk-Baghdad highway over the lack of electricity
January 17, 2011
Angry people set tires on fire, and threatened oncoming traffic with rocks, shutting down the route for a period of time. The local mayor tried to convince the demonstrators to go home, but rocks were thrown at him as well, which led the police to fire into the air to try to stop them.
According to AK News around 600 people took part in the event.
