The U.S. military handed over Iraq's Anbar province to Iraqi government forces on Monday. The vast desert region west of Baghdad was long a hotbed of the insurgency and the deadliest place in the country for U.S. troops.

Lourdes Garcia-Navarro talks to Steve Inskeep from the handover ceremony in the provincial capital, Ramadi.
