Iranian Troops Occupying Iraqi Oil Field Withdraw

Iranian troops who took over an Iraqi oil field near the disputed border between the two countries have withdrawn.

The U.S. military had predicted a peaceful, diplomatic solution, to the takeover. It had been hoping to avoid a direct confrontation with the troops.

The Iranians took over the oil field last week - meeting no resistance. There were no casualties.
