Correction

Just a minor correction on note 3: it wasn't Bolton that met the MeK in Paris recently but Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani - Bolton met them last year. Based on its indiscriminate bombings and attacks,the Mek - Muhahedin-e-Khalq - was designated a terrorist group until recently by all the major powers but has recently been "de-terrorised" by most of the west. It's an Iranian exile group that seems to have no presence in Iran which strongly suggests it had no role in the protests or the raising of slogans in the protests in that country. It started out as radical Islam and turned to "marxism" and then developed into a vicious cult dominated by a group of killers. President Donald Trump, National Security Advisor John Bolton, personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and a completely irrational cult. You wouldn't want to make it up.

Significant levels of

Significant levels of protests have going on in Iraq for a week: in Basra, where the port of Umm Qasa was blocked by residents, the cities of Amara, Nasiriya and Najaf. In several provinces there have been clashes with the security forces which has left 3 protesters dead so far. Government buildings have been attacked and set on fire and many riot police have been injured in the clashes. There have been some anti-Iranian slogans but the main focus of the demonstrators has been the Iraqi government, inadequate services and unemployment.
