BAGHDAD, Nov 14 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council announced on Thursday that a total 1,648 detained demonstrators have been set free nationwide.
The council said in a release that all the released protesters were not involved in attacks on public and private properties in the country.
However, the judicial council failed to reveal if there are still detained demonstrators.
The Iraqi government had warned that any demonstrator found guilty of acts of sabotage against public and private properties would be sentenced up to 20 years in jail.
Earlier in the day, at least one person was killed and dozens wounded in clashes between security forces and protesters in central Baghdad.
Iraq has been witnessing nationwide demonstrations demanding better living conditions and clampdown on corruption. (Pick up previous)
