JORDANIAN IN DOWNTOWN AMMAN COVER HIS FACE AS HE WATCHES T.V.
A Jordanian in Amman cover his face in front of a television showing a U.S.
Marine cover the face of a statue of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein with a
U.S. flag in Baghdad April 9, 2003. Jubilant Iraqis tied a noose around a
huge statue of Saddam Hussein in the heart of Baghdad and pelted it with
shoes as the Iraqi president's 24-year rule collapsed in chaos. In scenes
reminiscent of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, crowds cheered as men
climbed the huge statue of Saddam in the center of Baghdad and placed the
rope around the neck in preparation to topple it. Pictures of the month
