    Iraq: Violent protests in Basra (CNN)

    Anger and frustration with the Iraqi government have boiled over in the city of Basra.

    Protesters have been taking to the streets for days -- angry about poor public services like power outages and contaminated drinking water.

    The protesters set fire to several government buildings -- and U.N. observers say at least nine people died in the clashes, with almost 100 others wounded this week.
