Paramilitary groups protesting US airstrikes in Iraq began withdrawing from the perimeter of the US embassy in Baghdad on Wednesday, although some supporters remained.

By Wednesday afternoon, many had left the embassy and started setting up a protest camp outside a nearby hotel. A small group of protesters remained and said they would not leave until US forces were expelled from Iraq.
