UN tries to avert Iraq showdown
Thursday 09 July 1992
Doug Englund, the new regional chief of a UN special commission charged with overseeing Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, left from Bahrain. The team investigating Iraq's chemical-weapons arsenal kept a vigil for the fourth day outside the Agriculture Ministry in Baghdad to press for permission to inspect the building, according to Alastair Livingston, Mr Englund's predecessor, whose contract ended on Tuesday. Mr Livingston said the inspectors would not end the vigil until they were allowed into the ministry. They were expected back in Bahrain on Saturday, but would stay on if they had not been able to search the ministry by then. .
