This was reported by eyewitnesses on Monday. The 48-year-old clergyman had previously announced his retirement from politics.

The office of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kasimi is located in the building in what is actually a highly secured Green Zone. This further intensifies the political crisis in Iraq after demonstrators broke into the parliament building a month ago. Ten months after the parliamentary elections, the parties are still unable to agree on a president or a head of government, while the country is groaning under an economic crisis, inflation and corruption.
