(IraqiNews.com) Baghdad – Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi ordered the arrest of the Shia protesters who stormed, yesterday, the parliament building in the Green Zone in central Baghdad.

Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said in a press statement that those who destroyed public property or attacked police officers must be brought to trial, according to a report by the BBC Network.

Noteworthy, thousands of supporters of Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr stormed, yesterday, the heavily fortified Green Zone during a protest against the delay in the passage of the new Iraqi cabinet.

The protesters continue their sit-in in the courtyard of the celebrations in the Green Zone, while the Iraqi government has imposed a state of emergency in the capital Baghdad.
