Pro-Saddam demonstration held north of Baghdad
Hundreds of Iraqis demonstrated on Sunday in support of ousted leader, Saddam Hussein in the city of Baquba, north of Baghdad, witnesses said.
The demonstrators marched through the city, chanting slogans in support of Saddam while deploring Iraqi Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi.
The protestors started their demonstration at about 9 a.m. (0500GMT) and the process lasted for about one hour, with masked gunmen armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers securing the march. (albawaba.com)
