Iraqi nationals protest in Yemeni capital against al-Maliki government

Amid more demonstrations staged worldwide against Iraq Shia-led government - headed by Nuri al-Maliki - Iraqis expatriates in Sana'a decided to have a sit-in of their own.

Hundreds of Iraqi nationals gathered out the embassy on Wednesday chanting "Maliki leave, the Iraqi people don't want you" and ""Free Baghdad, out Iran."

Disillusioned with an increasingly sectarian government Iraq Sunni community, both within and outside Iraq is slowly organizing an opposition movement, demanding al-Maliki - who has been accused on many instances of corruption, gross human rights violations and sectarian-motivated repression against Iraq Sunni community - to immediately resign from his position and for his government to be dissolved.

The move said Asem al-Dulaimi, spokesman of Yemen Iraqi community explained the demonstration was in support of all free men in their homeland. Al-Dulaimi stressed the danger of having an Iranian-led Iraq, warning Tehran's hold over the region was taking dangerous proportion and would entail more sectarian strife throughout the region.

Several al-Islah party members in Sana'a told the Yemen Post they were sympathetic of Iraqis' demands because of the underlying Iranian theme. "Tehran is invading the Middle East, raging an underground war against Sunni Islam ... Of course we support our brothers' demands. People have a right to self-determination, no more dictatorship for the Middle East," said Noor al-Sharafi.

While no incident was reported, central security officers remained cautious in their analysis of the situation, saying that such demonstrations could easily degenerate into something much somber if other groups, ideologically supportive of Iran were to counter-demonstrate, and therefore push other factions to get in the game.
