Iraqi authorities given control of Camp Cropper, but doubts persist about their readiness.

    The US military has turned over to Iraqi authorities the last prison it controlled in the country.

    The handover of Camp Cropper could be the final chapter in American involvement in Iraqi prisons.

    But as Rawya Rageh reports from Baghdad, doubts persist over whether the Iraqis are ready to assume control over the prisons.
