Huge rally as Iraqis demand US troops pull out - BBC News
Huge crowds have taken to the streets of Iraq's capital, Baghdad, to demand that US forces leave Iraq. Powerful Iraqi Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr earlier called for a million people to join Friday's march, close to the US embassy in the capital. Iranian-backed militias are among those protesting in the city. The US killing of the top Iranian military commander, Gen Qasem Soleimani, on 3 January at Baghdad airport has fuelled tensions.
