Iraqi security forces have raided Baghdad's main protest at Tahrir Square, firing live rounds and tear gas at anti-government demonstrators who have camped there for months. The clashes took place after authorities began removing concrete barriers near Tahrir Square. There were no immediate reports of casualties. However, at least 7 people were wounded in clashes with police earlier in the day.
