Protesters in the Iraqi city of Karbala are demanding answers after an anti-government activist was shot dead in an apparent targeted killing.

Ehab al-Wazni was killed close to his home by gunmen in the early hours of Sunday by unknown gunmen using silenced weapons.

Al-Wazni supporters set the Iranian consulate on fire. Iranian-backed fighters are suspected of being behind the shooting.

Al-Wazni is one of more than 30 activists killed in Iraq since the beginning of large scale anti-government protests in October 2019.
