Iraqi Shiite Turkmen from Amerli, a village in Salahuddine province, protest in Karbala to demand the breaking of the siege of their hometown.
ISIS imposed the siege on Amerli in June 2014, trapping around 15,000 residents inside.
The Protestors are demanding that the Iraqi Army and central government provide Amerli residents with weapons and help them break the siege.
The protesters were evacuated by air from Amerli by the Iraqi government during an aid delivery mission.
