At least three people were shot dead when protesters attacked the Iranian consulate in the Iraqi holy city of Karbala on Sunday night.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The protesters, who demanded that Iran stop interfering in Iraq's internal affairs, climbed the consulate's walls.
Reports say the security forces opened fire, but another account says unknown gunmen were responsible.
There are also reports that security forces fired live rounds at protesters gathered in Baghdad on Monday.
Mass demonstrations against Iraq's government have continued despite a plea from the prime minister.
Adel Abdul Mahdi called on the protesters - who are angry at his failure to deal with widespread corruption, high unemployment and poor public services - to re-open roads and "help restore normality to the country" in remarks broadcast Sunday.
