US may try Sheehan for anti-war campaign
US authorities have arrested a number of anti-war protesters, including high-profile activist Cindy Sheehan, during a demonstration in Washington DC.
Eight peace activists were detained after laying coffins near a fence outside the White House during a Saturday rally in which thousands of anti-war protesters gathered at a park in the area to mark the seventh anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq .
They were demanding the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The protesters directed their anger at US President Barack Obama and demanded action against former President George W. Bush and his Vice- President Dick Cheney.
Sheehan, arrested at the end of the march, had earlier said, "We did lose some momentum when Obama came into office, but now we have younger people that are very energetic. They know we can change the world."
Sheehan, who has been and anti-war campaigner since she lost a son in the Iraq war, may stand trial, reports indicate.
She gained repute as a peace activist in 2005 for protesting outside of Bushs Texas ranch.
