Around 1,000 people, protesting the U.S.-led war in Iraq, have demonstrated in Amsterdam ahead of President Bush's arrival in the Netherlands.

The protesters gathered on Museum Square outside the U.S. consulate carrying signs with slogans criticizing Mr. Bush's Iraq policy.

Meanwhile, as many as 100 others demonstrated in Maastricht in the southern Netherlands, where Mr. Bush arrived Saturday evening. He plans to attend a ceremony Sunday at the American Cemetery in Margraten to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II.
