NotesNews: 19 Jan: Blix arrives today in Iraq, where his inspectors have widened their searches to include a hunt for a mobile biochemical weapons laboratory. MI6 has told them it may contain the means to produce anthrax and botulinum toxin. Unmovic, the UN inspection team, hopes to fly weapons scientists and their immediate families out of Iraq this week for questioning, perhaps at a British base in Cyprus. However, the Iraqi regime insists no scientist is willing to leave. Colin Powell, the US secretary of state, will launch a diplomatic drive at the UN to persuade the security council that Iraq has fallen short of the requirements for disarmament stipulated in resolution 1441. US officials have begun to argue that no further proof is needed for Iraq to be declared in "material breach" of the resolution. Hoon said last night inspectors do not need to find a "smoking gun" proving Iraq still has weapons of mass destruction in order to trigger war. [Sunday Times]
