    Iraqi authorities claim to have released 888 prisoners Empty Iraqi authorities claim to have released 888 prisoners

    Iraqi authorities claimed on Tuesday to have freed 888 prisoners in
    two weeks to placate month-long rallies in the country’s Sunni areas
    that have hardened opposition against the Shiite prime minister.

    The demonstrations come amid a political crisis that has pitted Prime
    Minister Nuri al-Maliki against several of his erstwhile government
    partners just months ahead of provincial elections.

    The protesters have railed against the alleged exploitation of
    anti-terror laws by the Shiite-led authorities to target their minority
    community and demanded the release of prisoners they say were wrongfully
    detained.

    Deputy
    Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani told a news conference in Baghdad
    on Tuesday that 888 prisoners had been freed since January 7, with a
    further 1,041 prisoners released on bail. He promised the releases would
    continue on a daily basis.

    Shahristani said priority would be given to female detainees when it came to being discharged on bail.

    The move has formed the centrepiece of the government’s response to
    rallies in western and northern Iraq, with Shahristani also apologising
    this month for authorities holding detainees without charge for
    prolonged periods.

    Officials have not provided any breakdown of the prisoners freed, and
    have not given details on how many had finished jail terms and how many
    had been held without charge.

    Anti-government rallies have been ongoing since December 23 in mostly
    Sunni areas of Iraq, with the longest-running of the protests blocking
    off a key highway linking Baghdad to Jordan and Syria.
