Implied textIn April 2003 many Iraqis celebrated the downfall of Saddam Hussein by vandalizing the many portraits and statues of him. One widely publicized event was the dramatic toppling of a large statue of Saddam in Baghdad's Firdos Square.
NotesNews: 11 April: America is struggling to put together a meeting of "free Iraqis" next week - a delicate venture that has been made even trickier by the killing yesterday of two leading clerics at one of Shia Islam's holiest shrines. The talks, expected to be held at an air base near the southern city of Nasiriyah, will be the first step towards the creation of an interim authority for post-Saddam Iraq. This will see Iraqis working alongside US supervisors, in the transition phase before a new permanent system of government is installed. The meeting will embrace internal figures who are untainted by involvement with the regime, and representatives of exiled opposition groups - among them Ahmed Chalabi, leader of the Iraqi National Congress (INC).
