US Army loads up Iraq equipment for journey home

The equipment which has been vital to the US Army during its campaign in Iraq is being shipped out of the country as the operation comes to an end.

Tonnes of gear and hundreds of vehicles are being steadily loaded onto massive container ships at Kuwait's al-Shuaiba port.

NCO John Kelly said the logistical challenge would mean around 12 to 15 ships would be loaded up with equipment to return to the US every month for some time.
