Rally of Iraqis in Damascus
Hundreds of Iraqi refugees in Syria have protested against a US Senate resolution that plans to divide the country into different regions.

"No for occupation and no for division," read a placard carried by one refugee. "Dividing Iraq is the start for dividing all countries in the region," read another.

The recent resolution calls on the Bush administration to encourage the Iraqi government and parliament to adhere to the country's constitution.

The Senate bill lays out a plan for a loose confederation of regions under a limited central government, leaving power with the regions.

Around 400 demonstrators who carried flags of the war-torn country gathered in the protest.
