Hundreds of anti-war protesters have rallied for a second day in several Asian cities to mark the third anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
Around 600 Malaysian activists took part in a peaceful rally Sunday outside the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
They chanted "Stop the War" and demanded U.S.-led forces immediately withdraw from Iraq. Hundreds of anti-war protesters also marched in Seoul and Tokyo to call for the pullout of South Korean and Japanese troops in Iraq.
On Saturday, British police said 15 thousand people gathered in London, chanting anti-war slogans and carrying posters critical of President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
About one thousand people also demonstrated in New York where speakers denounced the Bush administration. Smaller protests were held in Washington and other U.S. cities.
Protests were also reported in Denmark, Greece, Spain, Turkey and Pakistan. Anti war campaigners are planning a third day of rallies Monday as part of what they call "global days of action" protesting the Iraq war, which began three years ago.
