On Monday, the UN inspectors will search at least another four Iraqi facilities, according to the Iraqi Ministry of Information press center.
IATA experts revisited the "Al-Tuveisa" facility (20 km south of Baghdad) connected with the alleged Iraqi WMD program. At the same time, two teams of inspectors from UNMOVIC conducted the search of the "Ibn-Beitar" research center, which belongs to the Iraqi Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources (10 km north of Baghdad), and the "Fellujah-3" insecticide-producing facility (100 km north-west of Baghdad).
During the "Desert Storm" operation, the "Fellujah-3" facility was almost completely destroyed.
The group of inspectors working in the town of Mosul (400 km north of Baghdad) visited on Monday the "Faida" free-zone. Contrary to other facilities, this place is being searched for the first time since the start of inspections six weeks ago.
