Dozens of demonstrators held a rally demanding the release of their relatives who were arrested during joint raids by the U.S. and Iraqi forces.

Hundreds have been held "for prolonged periods, some for several years" in the Kurdish autonomous region in northern Iraq without referral to an investigative judge or without any charges being brought against them.
