A documentary on the country's Zaytun troops in northern Iraq has won the best film prize in the International Military Film Festival in Italy.

The Defense Ministry on Thursday said its defense public relations office produced "Korea Zaytun: Partner in Peace and Reconstruction" about peace and reconstruction activities of the country's troops serving in war-stricken places worldwide.

The festival also knighted Colonel Ahn Hak-seung of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in recognition of his contributions to peace and humanitarian assistance in Iraq.

Sixty-two films from 25 countries including the United States, Britain, China and France were entered in the festival.
