Thousands of Iraqis marched in a funeral procession Thursday in the restive southern city of Nasiriyah, AFP's correspondent said, defying a curfew imposed earlier to mourn victims of the crackdown.

At least 22 people have been killed and more than 180 wounded in the city, where security forces have cleared a demonstration with live fire, medics said.
