Iraqi Shi'ite militants marked the second anniversary of the fall of Saddam Hussein Saturday with a large anti-American protest.
Tens of thousands of followers of radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr marched in the same spot in central Baghdad where a huge statue of Saddam was pulled down two years ago. They chanted "yes to Islam, no to America or Saddam." Several protesters burned pictures of President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The marchers demanded a timetable for a U.S. pullout from Iraq.
President Bush has refused to offer one until the country is more secure. Meanwhile, police say a roadside bomb south of Baghdad killed 15 Iraqi soldiers Saturday while an attack on a convoy in Kut killed four truck drivers.
