Hello, I'm Neil Nunes with the BBC News.

President Biden has announced that American combat troops will leave Iraq by the end of the year. He was speaking during a visit to Washington by the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi. There are currently 2,500 U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Many are expected to remain training and mentoring Iraqi forces as they fight what's left of the Islamic State group. Mr. Biden said the U.S. would continue supporting Iraq in anyway it could. "Our shared fight against ISIS is critical for the stability of the region. And our counterterrorism cooperation will continue, even as we shift to this new phase we're gonna be talking about."

A nighttime curfew has been ordered in Tunisia for the next month, a day after President Kais Saied suspended parliament. He's also sacked more government ministers in the wake of the dismissal of the prime minister on Sunday. The president has denied accusations by the biggest political party Ennahda that he has carried out a coup. He insisted he was trying to save Tunisia. "Some talked yesterday about a coup. I don't know in which law or political science school they studied. How can a coup could be based on the constitution? This is an implementation of the constitutional script. Article 80 gave the president the right to take the procedures he sees necessary in the face of an imminent danger. Today, I have taken that responsibility."

A coalition of opposition parties in Peru has elected a new speaker of congress in a major setback for the recently elected socialist President Pedro Castillo. Mr. Castillo will be sworn in on Wednesday in a politically divided country after winning the election by a narrow margin. Leonardo Rocha reports. Mr. Castillo' party was prevented from fielding a candidate for congress speaker, because of alleged irregularities. Maria del Carmen Alva, a centrist was elected by a wide margin. She was backed by the losing presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori, who blamed her defeat on fraud without providing evidence. But Ms Alva has promised to be fair and said that she's willing to work with the new government. Mr. Castillo has the support of the poorest in Peru, but business leaders and the middle class have expressed concerns about his socialist ideas. Without congressional support, he won't be able to address inequality and poverty, which are his main priorities.
