Protesters have attacked government and other key buildings in the southern Iraqi city of Basra as thousands again took to the streets, angry over corruption and the lack of services. Crowds swarmed a state TV building and set fire to others, sources in the area told the BBC. It is the fourth straight night of violent protests but the unrest has been rumbling since July. At least seven people have been killed this week alone.
