ALGIERS, Algeria, March 27 (UPI) — Several hundred thousand Algerians from around the country converged on the capital Algiers on Thursday to protest the U.S.-British war in Iraq and demand an immediate halt to hostilities.

The protesters flouted an official ban on demonstrations and marched through the main streets, shouting anti-war slogans.

Participants in the march, organized by the leftist Labor Party and the Movement of Civil and Islamic Society, waved Iraqi flags and displayed pictures of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein next to mutilated pictures of U.S. President George W. Bush.
