Thousands of protesters have rallied in cities across the United States to mark the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq.
In Washington, several thousand people joined demonstrations near the White House, the Capitol and the American Petroleum Institute to voice their opposition to the continuing war.
Police arrested 32 people who tried to block entrances to the Internal Revenue Service building in Washington on Wednesday. Protesters gathered around the building, which houses the U.S. tax collection agency, in efforts to focus attention on taxes that help fund the war.
Demonstrators also converged in Miami, Florida, San Francisco, California and other cities to mark the day.
