SULAIMANI — Frustrated with deteriorating economic conditions, protesters gathered in Ranya for a fourth day in a row to condemn the Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) failure to pay public sector salaries on time or provide reliable public services.

Demonstrations took place in a wide range of cities and towns in the Kurdistan Region on Wednesday. While they have petered out in most places, they have continued in Ranya each evening since then, despite a heavy police presence.
