AMERICAN HUMAN SHIELDS MARCH IN NAJAF CALLING ON TROOPS TO GO HOME.
American human shields, Peter Lumshaine (L) and Mario Galvan, both of California, march towards a military base in Iraq's Holy city of Najaf carrying a banner calling on U.S. troops to come home April 28, 2004. Commanders near Najaf said that an air assault two days ago appeared to have demoralized guerrillas in the city and was part of a strategy to persuade their wanted religious leader, radical Shi'ite cleric Moqtada Al-Sadr, to give himself up.
