A picture taken on Dec. 20, 2017 shows the burnt premises of the Kurdistan Islamic Union party, in the city of Raniya, 130 kilometres north of Sulaymaniyah in the autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan region, as protests against political corruption raged for a third day despite a clampdown by security forces after five people were killed.
Protesters have unleashed their fury at all five of the autonomous Kurdish region’s main political parties, not just the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) of former regional president Massud Barzani who organised the fateful poll for independence in Sept. 2017 which drew sweeping reprisals from Baghdad and dealt a heavy blow to the region’s already flagging economy.
