US companies worried over Iraq security

With all US troops due to leave by the year-end, businesses looking to invest in the country are concerned about safety.

    US Vice President Joe Biden is in Iraq to rebuild relations between the two countries as the last of the remaining US soldiers prepare to leave the country.

    The 13,000 US troops in Iraq are due to leave by the end of the year, bringing to a close an almost nine-year-old war.

    But US companies looking to invest in the country are not convinced that Iraq is safe.
