  Half of Britons against Iraq war
Updated 02 June 2004, 07.20
Tony Blair with UK troops in Iraq
Half of British people think the war in Iraq was wrong, according to a new survey by the BBC.

Over 1,000 people were asked about what they thought about the war and how it had affected the world.

Almost three quarters said they thought people around the world thought less of Britain after the war, but about half thought troops should stay in Iraq.

But 46% of people were more afraid of terrorism now than before the war, with only 7% less afraid.

The poll comes as the US-led coalition is preparing to hand power in Iraq to a temporary Iraqi government.

The first elections in Iraq are set to take place in January 2005
