Thousands rally in Iraq against proposed U.S troop deal

Muqtada al Sadr, a widely influential Shiite cleric who called for the demonstration, issued a statement demanding that Iraq's parliament reject the deal that would allow U.S. troops to stay in Iraq until the end of 2011. The deal still must be approved by Iraq's parliament.
