US boosts Baghdad security force

The two leaders want to end violence in the Iraqi capital
US President George W Bush has announced that US troops will be redeployed to Baghdad to combat the deteriorating security situation.

The deployments would "better reflect the current conditions on the ground", he said at a joint news conference in Washington with Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki.

The troops would help to secure suburbs where militants operated, he said.

An average of more than 100 civilians per day were killed in Iraqi violence in May and June, according to the UN.
