Clashes between security forces and gunmen killed four more people in Ramadi on Tuesday, a day after the closure of a sprawling anti-government protest site, police and a doctor said.

Three gunmen and an Iraqi army sniper were killed, while three other militants were wounded, the sources said, bringing the death toll from clashes set off by the closure of the camp to 14.

The violence came after Iraqi security forces dismantled the protest camp located near the city of Ramadi, where Sunni Arab demonstrators had gathered for more than a year.
