"Under the order of the Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief and the head of counterterrorism agency, counterterrorism forces are deployed in some areas of Baghdad to protect sovereign and vital installations from being tampered by undisciplined elements exploiting the security forces for their preoccupation with protests and demonstrations," the agency said in a statement. ".

The anti-terrorism agency denied on Saturday sending troops to the southern province of Dhi Qar to maintain security after tense security and clashes between demonstrators and armed factions close to Iran, local media reported.
