BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Hundreds of jubilant Iraqis have cheered, danced, waved and threw flowers as U.S. Marines advanced through eastern Baghdad and into the centre of President Saddam Hussein's capital.
Reuters correspondent Sean Maguire said crowds mobbed a Marine convoy as it drove through the suburbs to the Martyr's Monument, just three km (two miles) east of the central Jumhuriya Bridge over the Tigris river.
"These are quite extraordinary scenes," Maguire said on Wednesday after a morning's drive through first the rundown sprawl of Saddam City and then more prosperous, leafy suburbs.
People, mainly young and middle-aged men were chanting, blowing horns and throwing flowers.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
