Shafaq News/ Dozens of angry demonstrators in Dhi Qar blocked the road linking the governorate's capital city, Nasiriyah, to its northern districts, on Sunday morning.
Shafaq News Agency correspondent said that a group of locals from "Al Khanjar" village organized a demonstration on the Nasiriyah-Gharraf-Shatra main road to demand constructing a road that leads to their home village.
"The blockade caused a stifling traffic jam. Many vehicles were forced to go back from where they came. Others went through al-Maysamiyah road," our correspondent said.
