Washington - President Barack Obama on Tuesday ended the US combat mission in Iraq, declaring no victory after seven years of bloodshed, and telling Americans and the world: "It is time to turn the page."

From the Oval Office, where George W Bush first announced the invasion that would come to define his presidency, Obama addressed millions who were divided over the war in his country and around the world.
