Iraq unrest: Nearly 40 killed in fresh wave of protests
At least 25 people died when security forces opened fire to clear bridges in the southern city of Nasiriya.
Another four protesters died in Baghdad and 10 more in the city of Najaf, where Iran's consulate was also burnt.
Iraqis have been taking to the streets to demand more jobs, an end to corruption and better public services.
The Iraqi military has announced it is setting up military "crisis cells" to quell unrest. The military command said an emergency unit had been created to "impose security and restore order".
