|Turkish troops still in Iraq despite ultimatum from Baghdad to withdraw |
A deadline for Turkey to withdraw its troops from the north of Iraq expires today.
But despite Baghdad's ultimatum to pull out within 48 hours, there are no signs that hundreds of Turkish troops will retreat.
Ankara says it is confident Iraq will come to accept the deployment, as part of efforts to fight ISIL militants.
