US-led coalition withdraws from Iraq airbase after rocket attacks

Troops at Qayyarah airbase in northern Iraq withdraw after deadly rocket attacks on bases with coalition personnel.

    The US-led coalition has withdrawn from the Qayyarah airbase in northern Iraq after a string of recent rocket attacks on other bases.

    The move is designed to minimise the risk of troops getting hit as the coalition transfers them to just a few facilities.
