Iraq protesters rebuild torched camps as rocket attack sparks fears: AFP28 January 2020 | 01:23 | FOCUS News Agency
The renewed pressure on Iraq's government came a day after three rockets hit the US embassy in Baghdad, wounding one person and marking a dangerous escalation after months of close calls against American facilities.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday on Twitter that "the government of #Iraq must take immediate steps to protect our diplomatic facilities as required by international law."
The attack on the embassy sparked renewed fears that Iraq could be dragged into another armed conflict as its capital and Shiite-majority south are rocked by the country's largest and deadliest grassroots movement in decades.
