Protesters torch Bush portraits ahead of his visit to Egypt

More than 100 people on Monday protested US President George W. Bush's upcoming visit to Egypt, setting pictures of him on fire and chanting slogans against him. They carried banners urging Egypt, a US ally, to reject Bush's visit, which is scheduled for Wednesday in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheik. Some angry protesters set several portraits for Bush on fire. One carried a poster depicting Bush as a pirate with an eye patch that read: "Kick out Bush the murderer."
