PARIS, Feb 15 (AFP) - A group of anti-war activists Sunday plastered the Paris outlet of the Planet Hollywood chain "Planet Baghdad" in a protest against the ongoing US military occupation of Iraq, the group and police said.

Around 50 militants from the group "Act Against the War" stuck a banner across the front of the restaurant's shopfront on the Champs-Elysees Avenue proclaiming "Occupation is a crime" and fixing a mock-up of the chain's logo that read "Planet Baghdad".

They also handed out pamphlets to passers-by calling for a demonstration on March 20, the first anniversary of the US invasion.
