United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) said in its third report on Iraqi protests that serious human rights violations continue with growing abductions and unlawful killings.
“Preliminary findings indicate that human rights violations and abuses continued during the period covered by the report, including unlawful, improper and excessive use of (lethal and less-lethal) force as well as ill- treatment and violations of procedural rights of arrested demonstrators,” the report said in its introduction.

“UNAMI continued to receive credible allegations of deliberate killings, abduction and arbitrary detention carried out by unknown armed men described as: ‘militia’, ‘unknown third parties’, ‘armed entities’, ‘outlaws’ and ‘spoilers’,” it added.

The report detailed that 170 deaths and 2,264 injuries were reported between 5 November to 8 December only.
“These figures should be considered preliminary: contrary to practice in the past, the Government did not permit UNAMI to obtain official hospital statistical data concerning demonstrations related casualties or visit hospitals to interview victims.”
