Iraq calls on U.N. to lift economic sanctions
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Embolden-ed by the latest weapons inspectors’ report, Iraq on Saturday called on the United Nations to remove crippling sanctions and ban weapons of mass destruction in the entire Middle East _ and eventually in the United States.
Iraq resumed destroying banned Al Samoud 2 missiles under U.N. supervision Saturday.
In the past week, Iraq has destroyed 40 of its IOO Al Samoud 2 missiles. It also has been destroying equipment used to make them.
Reports to the Security Council on Friday by chief inspector Hans Blix * and chief nuclear inspector Mohammed ElBaradei praised Iraq’s recent compliance. But inspectors also questioned Iraq’s motivation, as it began to give the inspectors what they wanted only when the threat of war became immediate.
Europe watches Malta vote on joining EU
: VALLETTA, Malta (AP) —Tiny, fiercely independent Malta voted Saturday on whether to join the European Union, the first such referendum among IO nations invited to join the bloc next year.
The referendum coincides with growing skepticism across Europe about EU expansion, and — true to Malta’s hotly contested politics — opinion polls before the vote showed the Maltese closely divided over membership.
Hand-counting of the ballots cast on the Mediterranean archipelago’s three inhabited islands, where some 280,000 Maltese were eligible to vote, and the complication of having to ferry some of ;the ballot boxes to the capital, Valletta, meant results of the referendum were unlikely before Sunday afternoon.
Al-Qaida could attack allied forces in Iraqi war
; WASHINGTON (AP) - Al-Qaida oper-atives are planning to strike at U.S. and allied forces taking part in a war in Iraq, according to information acquired by American intelligence agencies, counterterrorism officials said Saturday.
The operatives are subordinates of Abu Musab Zarqawi, whom CIA officials describe as a senior associate of Osama bin Laden. Some are in Baghdad; others are elsewhere in Iraq, the counterterrorism officials said.
