WATCH: Anger boils over in Basra

Protests in Iraq's oil capital Basra are intensifying as six people have been killed and at least 20 wounded.

Hundreds had gathered outside a local government building to vent their frustration over the government’s inability to provide basic services.

Some demonstrators threw stones and Molotov cocktails while government forces responded with live ammunition.
