(...)I want to feel like they do in other countries Ð why have those countries, which were founded after Iraq Ð why have they succeeded and we haven't? We're an oil-rich country.

"We are only carrying flags, we don't have anything else in our hands. But they keep hitting us -- we've had at least seven martyrs here. (...) I want my rights, we are being oppressed. We have nothing: no schools, no decent hospitals, no riches for the people. They only know how to steal -- and they steal from us, leaving us with nothing. We are only asking for education and health. We have to get rid of the corrupt ones. Without that, there's no solution. We want a civil state -- we don't want corrupt parties and corrupt politicians. I want these youths to govern us. If we don't execute these corrupt officials, then we won't succeed." he said. REUTERS/Ahmed Jadallah TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
