2,500 Russians Ready to Form 'Human Shield' in Iraq

The Iraqi embassy in Moscow has received over 2,500 visa enquiries from Russians wishing to take part in the so-called 'peace train'. This was announced today at a press conference in Moscow by Iraqi Ambassador Abbas Khalaf. According to Khalaf, visas will be issued to the Russians as soon as he receives a reply from Baghdad.

Citizens of various countries, including Italy, the US, Germany, and Great Britain are planning to travel to Iraq before the start of a military operation in order to act as a 'human shield'.
