More than 10,000 people, carrying coffins and chanting "No war," shrugged off a chilly rain in downtown Sydney on Saturday to protest against Israel's attacks on Lebanon. Police estimated turnout at about 10,000 people - including former Guantanamo Bay detainee Mamdouh Habib and the spiritual leader of Australia's Muslim community, Sheik Taj Aldin Alhilali - while organizers put the number at closer to 20,000. Parents carried Australian and Lebanese flags as their children wore T-shirts with slogans such as "Stop killing the babies."
