URGENT Sources - America begins to reduce its troops in Iraq after a defeat is urging[Ayna-follow-up]
Western contractors at a US-led coalition base in Iraq said Washington had begun to cut its troops in the country following a humiliating defeat.
They said US troops, weapons and equipment were being transferred from Iraq to Afghanistan.
The contractors said dozens of US soldiers left on daily flights last week.
In a related context, two Iraqi officials told the Associated Press that the US-led coalition reached an agreement to reduce its forces in Iraq for the first time since the start of the war on a preacher three years ago.
The Associated Press quoted its correspondent as saying that he saw the troop movements in line with the officials’ account.
The contractors and officials spoke on condition of anonymity and refused to disclose the exact size of the reduction.
