"The anticipation is now palpable amongst the crowds with the news that the presidential cavalcade has entered a sun-drenched mall. The cheering has swelled to deafening, parents lifting children onto their shoulders in the hope of catching a glimpse of the president — and his attempted assassination by Iraqi hitmen."
