The Marines turned most of their positions over to Iraqi security forces under part of an agreement to end the monthlong seige of the city.
But U-S commanders say the troops will return if the Iraqis do not maintain order.
Members of the U-S appointed governing council praised the agreement saying it spared the city an all-out Marine assault. They also say it will help reduce tensions that were inflaming anti-American anger throughout Iraq.
