Bush backs Iraq withdrawal freeze

Go to BBC News original
US President George W Bush says he will put a freeze on the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, as requested by his top general in the country.

In a statement the president said the "drawdown" would continue until July as planned, but then the military would need time to assess the next step.

He said he had told his senior commander General David Petraeus "he'll have all the time he needs".
