Bush makes surprise trip to Iraq

US President George W Bush has arrived in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on a surprise visit to meet new Prime Minister Nouri Maliki.

They met in the US embassy in the fortified Green Zone, where Mr Bush is expected to stay for about five hours in his first trip since November 2003.

"Good to see you," Mr Maliki said, who had had only a five-minute notice.
