Thousands of Baghdadis took to the streets of the Iraqi capital after midnight, apparently defying the publicly announced curfew date.
Twelfth Square correspondents said the Tahrir Square, the center of the protests, was overcrowded with more people than in previous days, especially at night.
At the same pace, most areas of the Iraqi capital have been overcrowded and wheeled, especially after midnight, the deadline for a curfew from Baghdad operations.
Mass protests in Baghdad and other cities in the south, a Shi'ite stronghold, began on economic difficulties early this month and resumed on Friday after a nearly two-week hiatus.
Thousands of Iraqi protesters gathered in Tahrir Square in central Baghdad on Sunday in defiance of a security crackdown that killed dozens over the past two days and a raid by security forces overnight to disperse them.
The demonstrators were afraid to repeat the raid on Sunday night, but that did not happen, and only to release tear gas from time to time. After at least 74 people were killed at the weekend, the violence stopped after there were no deaths in Baghdad or elsewhere overnight. About 231 people were killed in October.
Videos posted on social media showed security forces firing tear gas at students in a Baghdad neighborhood on Monday as protests spread to other pockets of the capital. One of the videos showed a group of students running and screaming. Students in five other provinces, mostly in the south, joined the protests.
