  Sheehan, Activists Arrested at White House

  Cindy Sheehan, the Vacaville, Calif., woman whose protest this summer outside President Bush's Texas ranch became a focal point of the antiwar movement, was arrested Monday at the White House during a civil disobedience campaign.

  On the third day of demonstrations that began with tens of thousands of protesters rallying Saturday on the National Mall, a group of about 300 sat on the sidewalk in front of the executive mansion after being refused the opportunity to meet with a White House staff member to present a petition calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. About 370 people were arrested.

  Before Sheehan was detained, she removed a picture of her son, Casey, who was killed last year in Baghdad, from around her neck and tied it with a pink ribbon to the wrought-iron fence that surrounds the White House. Sheehan, 48, was the first to be arrested.

  Earlier Monday, 41 protesters were arrested near the subway stop at the Pentagon. They were charged with disorderly conduct and impeding people's ability to enter and leave the building.
