The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) expressed grave concern over the continuing reports of deaths and injuries resulting from the use of force by security forces against demonstrators.
The Human Rights Office for the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq has documented 269 deaths in the context of demonstrations across the country, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Rupert Colville said in a statement.
The High Commission for Human Rights in Iraq announced yesterday that 23 people were killed and 1,077 demonstrators and security forces were injured in four provinces within four days.
Iraq has seen mass protests since the beginning of October calling for fighting corruption and improving the economic situation in the country. (QNA)
