More than 50 000 Muslims have staged a series of protests in the capital of Bangladesh, one of the world's largest Muslim countries, condemning the war as "inhuman, mindless and barbaric" and dragging ordinary Iraqi's into a humanitarian disaster.

They streamed out of Dhaka's mosques after special prayers yesterday seeking blessings for Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi president and Iraqi's.

Marching and chanting, thousands of protesters thronged central Dhaka. One elderly man wept as he led demonstrators in street prayers for Saddam and the Iraqi people. Protesters burnt effigies of US President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The protesters urged Muslims around the world to unite and protect the Iraqi people and their leaders from invading forces. Similar protests were held in the southern cities of Chittagong and Khulna as well as most towns across Bangladesh. - Reuters
