UN inspectors in Iraq continue their work at the "AL-Milyad" facility and at a small military base 70 km to the north of Baghdad.
Earlier on Saturday IAEA inspectors having spent about three hours in its territory completed their work at the "Um Al-Maarik" enterprise and moved over to another facility named "Al-Milyad" (Christmas) located not far from the first one (25 km to the south of Baghdad).
The second group of inspectors consisting of UNMOVIC representatives continued working in the territory of a small military unit without any identification marks and reminding of a missile and ammunition warehouse. The facility is located 70 km to the north of Baghdad far from any roads and settlements.
One might presume that UNMOVIC inspectors are interested in possible availability at the base of chemical or biological weapons.
On Saturday, like in previous days, UN inspectors were allowed to enter all facilities without any hindrance.
