US goods flood Iraq markets

US troops may be preparing to leave, but things they use have found their way into local markets.



    US combat troops are preparing to pull out of Iraq by the end of August.

    But when they are gone, they will leave behind loads of US goods - many of which have already found their way into the local markets.

    The bazaars are lined with everything from scrap metal to army gadgets and toiletries.
