Alhurra-Iraq’s Eman Bilal was in the Karbala province to report on a demonstration held by local teachers after one of the female teachers had been physically assaulted in the school by the followers of a Shia cleric Al-Sarkhi. Followers of the same cleric threatened and assaulted the Alhurra-Iraq correspondent and camera crew as they tried to cover the demonstration. The altercation with the camera crew took place in front of Iraqi security forces, who did not attempt to break up the situation or provide protection for the Alhurra-Iraq crew.
