Hey ATS'ers,

The internet is full of details about the US troops in Iraq. I'm trying to find out any current news about the UK and foreign troops in Iraq.

UK troops are in Iraq still, but I can't find much news on what precisely the UK troops are doing.

Has anybody got any links or info that will help me?

Thanks in advance.

I'm bumping this up because it went to the second page of todays posts within a few hours and I would like any info people are aware of. Thanks.

UK troops have it much easier than their US counterparts.

In general, they are still welcomed as liberators in the South by the vast majority of the population.
Militarily, their job is not a lot much different to what they were used to undertaking in Northern Ireland.
They patrol (normally with Iraqis) and generally just show a presence to reassure the local populations.
Behind the scenes the UK military is organising the building of an Iraqi security and intelligence force. They are also substancially involved in the rebuilding of infrastructure - opening water pipelines etc.
