BAGHDAD (Reuters) – 100.000 Iraqis across the country marched on Friday in support of Moqtada al-Sadr’s opposition to a draft constitution that U.S.-backed government leaders say will deliver a brighter future.

``Bush and America out,'' yelled cleric Abdel-Zahra al-Suwaidid, reading a statement on Sadr's behalf in the Baghdad slum of Sadr City which is named after his revered father, a cleric allegedly killed by Saddam Hussein's agents.
