Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Madhi held an emergency meeting with officials in a bid to stop the bloodshed.

I might Ilana the coffins have two more of the victims of this bloody week were taken this afternoon for burial more than a hundred are confirmed to have died in the five days of protests for charities and human rights agencies say the actual figure is higher and thousands have been injured the streets in Baghdad and elsewhere had been quieter today just the mess left behind after moments of serious disorder and violence tonight though there has been more like this the security forces police and the army have been firing live rounds at protesters as well as volleys of teargas snipers have also been seen apparently to take out individual protesters some of them have sling shots but most seem only to be carrying their country's flag the protesters have been driven by a profound sense of hopelessness the people on the streets are young educated and they're fed up of having a complete lack of any prospects either master's degree but the government would not even hire me as a street sweeper all these young people are treated unfairly it does sound like the government might be listening the Prime Minister tonight striking what is at face value at least conciliatory I am ready to go wherever our brotherly protestors are stationed and meet them or send them envoys to other locations and other provinces without any armed forces I'll go and meet them without weapons and sits with them for hours to listen to their demands the internet was cut but he's working now although social media is not reliable an attempt by the authorities to prevent the protesters from communicating and coordinating on some private TV stations were taken offline – by unidentified masked men the government hasn't explained why had apparently ordered its agents to do this we have not forged reality we transmitted the truth as it is it seems that this state cannot bear the truth I hope that the premier would announce his star but he was silent towards what happened 60% of Iraq's population is under 25 they're calling simply for their country to function the basic services to work the government accountability and an end to corruption it is 16 years since a Western coalition Elstad Saddam Hussein since then Iraq has been framed by waves of violence they fought foreign powers each other the Islamic state and now the young here just want a viable future Mark Stone Sky News [Applause]
