Anti-war demo draws thousands - Wales Crowned Kings Of Europe - Exiled Tibetans plan London vigil - Kids May Have To Swear Pledge To Queen.



Anti-war demo draws thousands
Thousands of anti-war protesters rallied to demand Britain withdraw its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. Activists urging an end to Britain's role in overseas' wars gathered in Trafalgar Square, central London, for a march on parliament. The protest, organised by the Stop the War Coalition, was called to mark the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Demonstrators called for no US attack on Iran and for an end to the "siege" of Gaza.

Wales Crowned Kings Of Europe
Wales are celebrating after winning the Grand Slam with a 29-12 victory over defending champions France in the tournament's final match. Prince William, the Vice Royal Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, was clearly delighted as he presented the RBS 6 Nations trophy to the triumphant reds. He cheered on as record-breaking wing-wizard Shane Williams struck gold in the 60th-minute.

Exiled Tibetans plan London vigil
Tibetans exiled in the UK will hold a vigil in London on Saturday night amid increasing violence in their homeland.
Protest against Chinese rule has resulted in as many as 100 civilian being killed by security forces, according to the Tibetan government in exile, although the official death toll is far lower.
Campaigners in the UK have called on British ministers to "end their silence" over human rights conditions in the autonomous region, contrasting their attitude now with that of last year when violence erupted in Burma.

Kids May Have To Swear Pledge To Queen
Schoolchildren may have to swear allegiance to the Queen under proposals aimed at promoting British citizenship. A new public holiday could also be introduced to celebrate Britishness, under recommendations to bolster national identity published today. Former Attorney General Lord Goldsmith suggested launching the event alongside the London 2012 Olympics or what will be the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in the same year. Prime Minister Gordon Brown commissioned Lord Goldsmith to lead a review into a bid to strengthen national identity.
