Protests in Copenhagen, Denmark, involving Quran desecration, responding to similar protests in Sweden, trigger unrest in Iraq, leading to an attempted breach of Baghdad's Green Zone and armed attacks on Danish Refugee Council facilities in Basra.
Four people are killed and around 80 others are injured during a stampede at a stadium in Basra, Iraq. It is suspected that the incident occurred when some people tried to push their way into the stadium.
Thousands of Iraqis take to the streets in Baghdad and major southern cities, including Basra and Najaf, to both mark the anniversary of the protests and renew calls to end corruption. Security forces in central Baghdad threw tear gas to prevent marchers from crossing strategic bridges, injuring at least six, and around 43 officers were injured after protesters threw Molotov cocktails at them.
The death toll of Saturday's explosion in Basra, Iraq, rises to 43, with the number of injured people being over 100. Police say the explosion was as a result of a power generator short-circuiting but other sources claim it was due to a car bomb.
