Iraqi security forces expanding control

Iraqi forces will next month acquire the security control of the central Shiite province of Qadisiyah from the American military, a Defence Ministry spokesman said.

Qadisiyah would be the 10th of 18 provinces to be taken over by the Iraqi forces from the US-led foreign troops amid a push to transfer security control of the entire country to Baghdad.

"In July, we will take security responsibility of Diwaniyah (capital of Qadisiyah) from the multi-national forces," Major General Mohammed al-Askari said.

"We have prepared the required force to take this security responsibility,"
