BBBC NEWS | Middle East | Poland yields to US in Iraq zone: "Poland yields to US in Iraq zone
Polish troops in Iraq have handed over military authority in two provinces to US marines because of worsening security in the holy city of Najaf.
The Polish-led multinational force in the area is giving up control of Najaf and Qadisiya provinces, a Polish military statement said.
The change was ordered by the senior US officer in Iraq, Gen George Casey, the statement said.
The multinational force retains control of three other provinces in the area.
The move came as Iraqi and US forces battled militants loyal to radical Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr for a fifth day in Najaf. "
