Protests across the globe show no signs of abating, with fresh rounds of unrest in Bolivia, Iraq, Algeria, Honduras, Chile, Lebanon, Spain and the Gaza Strip.

At least 24 people were killed and more than 200 injured in renewed protests against Iraq's government, the country's Human Rights Commission said, despite an appeal from religious leaders for protesters and security forces to remain peaceful.

In Lebanon, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah doubled down on support for the presidency of Michel Aoun and the reforms of Prime Minister Saad Hariri as the only way to stop chaos.

Bolivians banged and pots and pans from windows and rooftops in the capital La Paz on Friday, protesting a controversial election count handing President Evo Morales a fourth consecutive term that would extend his rule to nearly two decades.
