CLEAN:US ends 'overwatch' of Baghdad Green Zone checkpoints

US military support for Iraqi efforts to secure Baghdad's Green Zone ended on Tuesday, in the latest step in the American withdrawal from Iraq more than seven years after its invasion of Iraq. The pullback marked the first time since 2003 that no US soldiers were present at any of the so-called entry control points to what is now referred to as the International Zone. The event was marked with a ceremony inside the heavily-fortified compound for Iraqi government buildings and a number of foreign embassies. (Footage by AFP/Getty Images)
