Iraqi forces take control in one province
24 Iraqis killed in attacks nationwide

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- British and Australian forces handed over security responsibility for relatively peaceful Muthanna province to Iraqi forces on Thursday in the first such transfer of an entire province.

Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki hailed the security transfer as an important step toward the goal of full Iraqi responsibility for all 18 provinces by the end of next year.

But at least 24 people were killed in attacks nationwide Thursday, illustrating the security challenges faced by this country.
