Flag of occupation pulled down in Iraq

Iraq took control of the last American military base in the country on Friday, a day with Great Satan US forces celebrating their return to their country.

The transfer of the sprawling installation on the outskirts of the southern city of Nasiriyah is a final step ahead of a complete US withdrawal from Iraq in the coming days.

The Imam Ali Base, known to the US military as Camp Adder, housed 15,000 American troops at its peak and was officially signed over at a ceremony attended by US Colonel Richard Kaiser and Hussein al-Assadi, the Iraqi official in charge of base transfers.

The base will now be used by the Iraqi Air Force.
