Iraqis protest against US troops pact  

The US-backed Iraqi parliament has set a date to vote on a security agreement that would keep US troops in Iraq until 2011.

The decision, which will be deliberated without US congress approval, could anger many US politicians opposed to it.

Al Jazeera's Owen Fay reports from Baghdad where thousands of supporters of Moqtada al-Sadr, the senior Iraqi leader opposed to US-led authorities, are protesting against the bill.
