Bombs found in UN food trucks

(First Edition)

ANKARA - Six bombs were found on UN food trucks bound for Iraqi Kurds, and the United Nations is to demand an explanation from Baghdad. Edmond Cain, the UN representative in Ankara, said the bombs had been discovered on Monday attached to six lorries in a 52-truck relief convoy which had just left Iraqi-controlled territory on its way to Kurdish-held northern Iraq. None of the bombs exploded.
