Australia: Iraq Again

Leader of the opposition, Mr. Simon Crean, accused the Prime Minister of lying to the Australian people about the country's commitment to the US-led attack against Iraq. At the same time, the media here revealed that a squadron of 18 Air Force planes is scheduled to leave for the Middle East within the next two weeks.

A prominent Australian defence specialist said in a TV interview today that Iraq has no links with al-Qaeda and the country should rather focus on combating terrorism in Asia.

A group of Australians intending to serve as human shields in Iraq left Adelaide this week.
