    Tony Blair, the British prime minister, announced on Wednesday that the number of British troops in Iraq would be cut by 1,600 to 5,500 in the next  couple of months, with further reductions likely later in the year.

      

    Des Browne, the British defence secretary, is poised to announce on Monday that up to 1,000 more troops will be heading to Afghanistan.
