Tens of thousands of demonstrators in Europe and the United States have marked the second anniversary of the war in Iraq with anti-war rallies.
British police say about 45,000 people marched against the war in London, leaving a black cardboard coffin in front of the U.S. embassy. Swedish demonstrators chanted anti-war slogans while other rallies were held in Poland and Italy. Several hundred protesters blocked traffic in New York City.
In his weekly radio address Saturday, President Bush said the victory against Saddam Hussein has inspired democracy across the Mideast. He said Palestinians are turning away from violence, Lebanese are demanding sovereignty, and women now have the right to vote in Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, security officials in Iraq say three policemen were killed and seven others wounded in a roadside bomb attack in Kirkuk.
