Iraqi protesters withdraw from US Embassy in Baghdad

Supporters of Iraqi paramilitary groups who stormed the US embassy’s perimeter and hurled rocks in two days of protests withdrew on Wednesday after Washington dispatched extra troops. The withdrawal followed calls from the government and senior militia leaders. The protesters set fire to the reception area and hurled stones at US Marines guarding the compound, who responded with tear gas.
