Shafaq News/ The Internet service returned to Iraq on Tuesday morning after a midnight cut as the country witnessed a wave of bloody protests.

The Iraqi authorities did not give an explanation for the reason for cutting the internet off.

Iraqi authorities have previously cut Internet services to face a wave of protests.

On Monday, at least five people were killed after Iraqi security forces opened fire in Baghdad on protesters, thousands of whom continued to rally in the biggest wave of anti-government protests in decades.

Violence against demonstrators killed more than 250 Iraqis in the demonstrations, which began at the beginning of October, in protest against a government they see as corrupt and ordered by foreign powers.
