Australian Prime Minister-elect Kevin Rudd said Friday that the country's combat troops would be pulled out of Iraq by mid-2008.

The combat force in Iraq would come home "by around about the middle of next year," Rudd said in a radio interview.

Rudd, leader of the Labor Party, swept to power at elections last Saturday.
