An influencial Shia cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr has led thousands of Iraqis to a protest match in the centre of Baghdad to demand an end to sectarianism and corruption.

The demonstrators defied a protest ban placed by the Iraqi government.

The protesters matched to the Tahrir Square, holding placards reading "Yes, yes to reform. No, no to sectarianism. No, no to corruption". 

The protest went ahead despite warnings by security forces that the rally was "unauthorised" and would be treated as a "terrorist threat".

Sadr had led repeated protests in recent months, some of them breaching the Central Green Zone government and diplomatic compound.
