What next for US troops in Iraq?

Talks begin on a potential easing of the US military presence in Iraq.

Since joining the fight against ISIL (ISIS) in 2014, Washington has provided about $5bn in military aid to Baghdad.

But discussions are now being held on how much longer the troops will be there.
