Fighters loyal to the radical Shia cleric, Moqtada Sadr, have agreed to withdraw from the centre of Karbala.
The holy Iraqi city has seen heavy fighting between the militia and coalition forces over the past month.

US troops began pulling out on Friday and there has been intense pressure for Mr Sadr's fighters to follow suit.

In Baghdad, meanwhile, five people were killed in a suicide car bomb explosion outside the house of a deputy interior minister.

He received head and chest injuries, but is in a stable condition, a ministry official said.
