Italy Plans September Withdrawal of Iraq Troops

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announces he will start withdrawing the country's 3,000 troops from Iraq starting in September. Many read the move as a sign that his loyalty to the Bush administration is starting to erode his domestic political strength. Italy's announcement follows the decision of three other countries to pull troops out.
