(Worthy News) - Anti-government protesters burned an Iranian consulate in southern Iraq for a third time on Tuesday, as the country’s political leaders continued talks over selecting a new prime minister following weeks of widespread unrest.

In a separate incident, Five rockets landed inside Ain al-Asad airbase, a sprawling complex in Western Anbar which hosts US forces, without causing any casualties, said a statement from Iraq’s security media on Tuesday evening. The statement gave no further details.

Iraqi President Barham Salih met with the country’s main political blocs as a 15-day constitutional deadline to name the next prime minister nears, two Iraqi officials said. Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi announced his resignation on Friday. The Sairoon bloc, led by influential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, addressed Salih in a letter and said they gave protesters the right to support a premier of their choice.
