Iraq security forces kill two in Baghdad protest: police sources

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi security forces opened fire and launched tear gas on Friday at protesters on a bridge in central Baghdad, killing two people and wounding 22 others, police sources said.

One death was caused by bullets and the other by a tear gas canister launched directly at the head, the sources said. The clashes took place on Ahrar bridge.
