Palestinians demonstrated in the West Bank once again Monday to mourn the death of Saddam Hussein. Some 500 people attended a rally mourning Saddam in Halhoul, near the city of Hebron in the southern West Bank, waving flags of all the Palestinian factions. They burned the Israeli and American flags, and chanted slogans against Iran and against Iraqi Shiites such as Muqtada al-Sadr who opposed Saddam. In the northern West Bank town of Yabed, near Jenin, 500 people participated in a march for Saddam, firing in the air, and chanting slogans in support of Saddam.
