LONDON, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Global miner Anglo American took a $3.9 billion writedown on Friday, mainly on its Brazilian iron ore operations, due to weak commodity prices.

The company also posted a 25 percent drop in underlying operating profit for last year to $4.9 billion, in line with expectations.

Anglo warned last month of a likely charge on last year's results and analysts had pencilled in about $2-3 billion. (Reporting by Eric Onstad; Editing by Mark Potter)
