Tens of thousands of mourners, among them Iraqi prime minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, attend a funeral procession in Baghdad, Iraq, for those killed in a United States airstrike—among them Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran's Quds Force and at least five others. The bodies are then brought to Karbala and Najaf, where Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and the other Iraqis killed are to be buried.
At least five people are killed in a second day of spontaneous protests against unemployment, government corruption and lack of basic services in Iraq. Police say they have "lost control" of the city of Nassiriya after exchanging gunfire with protesters. Curfews are imposed on the Iraqi cities of Baghdad, Nassiriya, Amarah and Hillah.
At least 24 people are killed in a series of attacks in and around Baghdad. ISIL has claimed responsibility.
