Kurdish Military Opens Fire At Funeral Of Protester Amid Crackdown

Thousands of protesters gathered at the funeral of killed protester Miran and other sites in defiance of a government crackdown on protests in Iraqi Kurdistan, with demonstrations breaking out in Kifri, Qaldze, and Rania.

Protesters in Rania blocked roads and clashed with riot police on the ground, who did not open fire but rather tear gassed the crowd and injured several dozen. Around 100 were detained in Rania, with charges of rioting laid against many of them.
