    A "new dawn" has come to Iraq, the US military said, after the last US combat brigade was pulled out of the country on Thursday - more than seven years after the invasion.

    It was widely thought the departure, which happened two weeks ahead of schedule, would be met by a jubilant response from many Iraqis.  

    However, there is growing uncertainty as to whether the country is ready to stand on its own two feet amid its political instability.

    Rawya Rageh reports from Baghdad, Iraq's capital, on the public's reaction to the US withdrawal.
