The last American combat troops in Iraq have left the country, the US military has said.
The 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division began crossing by land into Kuwait in the early hours of the morning, said a spokesman.
Their departure comes ahead of a 31 August deadline for an end to the US combat mission in the country.
But the Pentagon has not confirmed that the move marks an early end to combat operations.
Most of the 4,000 Stryker Brigade troops drove out of Iraq in a convoy of armoured vehicles, say reports.
