Thousands reach Manhattan for anti-war protest

A day after the US military announced that April was the deadliest month for American forces in Iraq this year, thousands of anti-war protesters were converging on Manhattan on Saturday to call for an immediate withdrawal of troops from that country. Organizers said they were expecting marchers to include the Rev. Jesse Jackson, film director Jonathan Demme, and Cindy Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son died in Iraq.
