Demonstrators begin to leave Green Zone

Iraqi people activists who occupied Iraq's parliament on Saturday have begun to leave Baghdad's government district.

Organisers used loudspeakers to call an end to the sit-in in the Green Zone.

Earlier, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered the arrest of those who had stormed parliament.

The demonstrators, mostly supporters of the cleric Moqtada Al Sadr, were angered by delays in approving a new cabinet.

The protesters accuse the government of neglecting much-needed reforms, as it struggles with its campaign against the so-called Isis group and declining oil revenues.
