Questions over Iraq war funds

As combat troops leave Iraq, concerns remain over the costs of the war for the US.

    The US, which has withdrawn its last combat brigade from Iraq, has spent at least $700 billion on the Iraq war since its start more than seven years ago.

    But that figure does not include future interest payments and long-term care for wounded soldiers.

    Now, there are also concerns that funds for Iraq's reconstruction are being misspent.
