In Iraq, 44 members of parliament announce their resignation after security forces dismantle an anti-government protest camp.

The lawmakers are demanding the withdrawal of the army. Earlier in the day, clashes broke out between gunmen and police in the central city of Ramadi where the camp was located. Three policemen and ten gunmen were killed. The violence also spread to the nearby city of Fallujah. The lawmakers are also calling for the release of detained MP Ahmed al-Alwani who backs the anti-government protesters. On Saturday, security forces raided Alwani's home. Deadly clashes broke out after his guards opened fire on the police. Seven people -- including the MP's brother, five guards and a security force member - were killed before Alwani was taken into custody.
