Riham Yaqoob was a doctor and female activist in Iraq who became the face of many local anti-government and anti-corruption protests.

She died after being shot in her car whilst in the city of Basra. It is the third of a series of attacks on activists in a week.

The killing of another activist, Tahseen Osama, saw protesters take to the streets to demand the authorities uncover those responsible.

Many human rights activists are beginning to become concerned over the growing frequency of these attacks.

  1. Defund and Privatise the Corrupt BBC!!!
    Defund and Privatise is the way forward the Draconian extortion of monies from folk who are not interested in the BBC biased and arrogant opinions via its shoddy left, liberal, socialist views after all it’s now a time for “Choice” and that is why the Corrupt BBC should be Privatised and turned into a Subscription Service and the “Choice” will then be the public on whether to pay or not !!!
    And with the discontent currently towards the BBC I’m positive this will happen in the not too distant future.
