Iraqi officials Friday expelled Cable News Network's four correspondents from
Baghdad.

CNN had been the last U.S.-based television network to have staff members in
the Iraqi capital, where it opened its bureau in August 1990, prior to the start
of the Gulf War.

The four journalists are reporters Nic Robertson and Rym Brahimi, producer
Ingrid Formanek and photographer Brian Puchaty.

The group was set to leave for the Jordanian border at the first
opportunity.
