Last U.S. combat brigade hands over security to Iraqis

While this was the last combat brigade to hand over control to Iraqi forces, there will still be six brigades left in the country after U.S. combat troops leave by the end of the month.

The six Advice and Assist Brigades, which come into effect from September 1 when the U.S. moves formally into an advisory role, will train and support Iraq’s army and police.
