Inspectors: No WMD in Iraq


But the Iraq Survey Group will assert that Saddam Hussein had plans to start producing weapons in defiance of UN sanctions, US officials say.

Chief weapons inspector Charles Duelfer will reveal the findings on Wednesday.

Mr Duelfer is due to appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he is expected to confirm that Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction when the US-led invasion began in March 2003.
