Americans protest against war in Iraq

Hundreds of thousands of anti-war demonstrators marched through lower Manhattan in New York on Saturday to demand an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. The US military announced last week that April had been the deadliest month for its forces in Iraq this year. According to Fox News, protestors, including actress Susan Sarandon and activist Jesse Jackson, said the war was illegal, immoral and unethical. Organisers said the march was also meant to oppose any military action against Iran, which is facing international criticism over its nuclear program. The military says at least 67 US troops died in Iraq this month.
