Baghdad, Iraq - Republic of
A U.S. Marine covers the face of a statue of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein
with a U.S. flag in Baghdad April 9, 2003. U.S. troops briefly draped an
American flag over the face of a giant statue of President Saddam Hussein in
central Baghdad on Wednesday as they prepared to topple it in front of a
crowd of Iraqis.The gesture, likely to be highly provocative in much of the
Arab world where the U.S. invasion of Iraq has stirred widespread anger, was
quickly reversed and an Iraqi flag was tied instead to the statue's
neck.Local residents had earlier scaled the 20-foot (six metre) statue and
slipped a noose around its neck to drag it down. PP03040026
