BRITISH ARMY TROOPS ARE COVERED IN FLAMES DURING RIOT IN BASRA.
British Army troops are covered in flames from a petrol bomb thrown during a violent protest by job seekers, who say they were promised employment in the security services, in the southern Iraq city of Basra March 22, 2004. As the protest evolved into violence, demonstrators were heard to chant, "Yes yes to Yassin, no no to America, Britain and Israel" in response to the killing in Gaza of Hamas founder and spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.
