Iraqis want Saddam dead

Iraqis march...for the execution of Saddam.

Shi'ite Muslims marched through Baghdad for a second day yesterday, this time demanding the execution of Saddam Hussein — whose Sunni-dominated regime repressed the Shi'ite majority for decades.

An estimated 5,000 people joined the march that wound its way from Sadr City, a poor Shi'ite neighborhood in northeastern Baghdad, to Firdous Square, the plaza in the center of the capital where Saddam's statue was pulled down April 9, marking the ouster of the Ba'athist regime.
