Two protesters died in Baghdad early Monday after being shot with tear gas canisters in violent confrontations with Iraqi security forces, medical sources told AFP.

Demonstrations over power outages erupted in the capital and several southern cities on Sunday, as temperatures topping 50 degrees Celsius (122 Fahrenheit) overwhelm electricity generators across the country.

The deaths were the first since Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi, who had promised a dialogue with protesters, took office in May.
