Officials sought to head off the demonstrations against Iraqi Prime Minister, Nuri al Malaki, by beginning a mass release of female prisoners, a key demand of Sunni Arab protesters angered by what they allege is the misuse of anti-terror legislation by the Shiite-led authorities to target their minority community.
