“The Americans seem to be completely lost,” says Hasan Muhamad, a colonel in the new Kirkuk police force.

From the old Iraqi TV building in Kirkuk, the new US-approved station, Kirkuk TV, was broadcasting local news and messages from the Americans and local community leaders in Kurdish, Arabic and Turkmen languages.

The team that replaced the old pro-Saddam staff packed up their equipment on Saturday and quit.

They said they could no longer tolerate the constant harassment from the American troops, who frequently charged into the building in search of weapons. BBC
