Britain suffered defeat in Iraq, says US general

The British army suffered defeat in Iraq when it pulled out of Basra, a senior American general has claimed.

UK forces left the city in 2007, leaving the people to be "terrorised", Gen Jack Keane, a key adviser to the White House told the BBC.

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown described the withdrawal at the time as "a pre-planned and organised move".
