LAS VEGAS (AP) - A group of anti-war protesters marched outside
The Venetian hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip to urge an immediate return of U.S. troops from Iraq.
Organizers say they selected the site because of resort owner Sheldon Adelson's financial support of Freedom Watch, which backs
the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq.
About 100 demonstrators took part in Saturday's march organized by Nevada Workers Against the War.
During a trip to Las Vegas earlier this year, President Bush attended a fundraiser at Adelson's home.
Organizers say the "No More Endless War" rally was the first of its kind on the Strip since the war in Iraq began five years ago.
