Demonstrations Held Around the World to Mark Third Anniversary of Iraq War

March 18, 2006 - Posted at 9:06 p.m. CST

LONDON (AP) _ Thousands of anti-war protesters gathered in

London, some carrying posters with pictures of President Bush that

read ``world's number-one terrorist.''

Crowds gathered near Parliament and Big Ben to mark the third

anniversary of the U-S-led invasion of Iraq. They headed to a rally

at Trafalgar Square. Streets have been shut down in the shopping

and theater district.

Britain is the strongest U-S ally in the war, with about

eight-thousand troops in Iraq. Eight-hundred are set to pull out by

May.

Meantime, about a thousand demonstrators joined a march in

Stockholm to the U-S Embassy. About three-thousand have gathered in

Istanbul, Turkey, where opposition to the war is nearly universal.

Protests are being held worldwide.
