Iraqi politicians and their regional allies gathered in Baghdad on Tuesday to discuss how to resolve two months of protests that brought down the government, as violence hit southern cities. Demonstrators demanding reform have flooded the capital and the Shiite-majority south since October, in the largest grassroots movement the country has witnessed in years. Seen as a threat to the ruling elite, rallies were met with violence from security forces and armed groups, leaving more than 420 people dead and nearly 20,000 wounded -- the vast majority demonstrators.
