Mathura, UP, Jan 1 (UNI) Muslims today held an agitation in this district to protest the execution of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Police said after offering Idu'l Zuha 'namaz', Muslims took to the streets and shouted anti-Bush slogans near Govindnagar police chowki. They executed an effigy of the United States (US) President George W Bush to protest the execution of Saddam, who was executed in Iraq on December 31 on charge of ''crime against humanity''.
