CENTRAL BAGHDAD.

A U.S. soldier watches as a statue of Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein falls
in central Baghdad April 9, 2003. U.S. troops pulled down a 20-foot (six
metre) high statue of President Saddam Hussein in central Baghdad on
Wednesday and Iraqis danced on it in contempt for the man who ruled them
with an iron grip for 24 years. In scenes reminiscent of the fall of the
Berlin Wall in 1989, Iraqis earlier took a sledgehammer to the marble plinth
under the statue of Saddam. Youths had placed a noose around the statue’s
neck and attached the rope to a U.S. armoured recovery vehicle. PP03040026
