Protesters quit Baghdad's Green Zone after unprecedented breach

Protesters withdrew from Baghdad’s Green Zone on Sunday after breaking into the fortified area and storming Iraq’s parliament in an unprecedented security breach the day before. The move, which lessens the pressure on politicians in Baghdad, came as rare bombings in the south killed 33 people and wounded dozens. “The protest organising committee announces the withdrawal of the demonstrators from the Green Zone,” it said in a statement, citing respect for a major Shiite pilgrimage as the reason for their departure.
