Protesters blocking a bridge in the southern Iraqi city of Basra are calling for the provincial governor to resign, as the drumbeat of demonstrations railing against the government continues across Iraq.


About 1,000 people rallied Friday in Basra, Iraq's second-largest city, 340 miles (550 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad, to demand better services from the government, jobs and improved pensions.They shouted slogans warning that today's demonstration was peaceful but ones in the future might not be.
