A second team inspected a laboratory in the Abu Ghurayb suburb of Baghdad, which was associated with Iraq's biological weapons programme before 1991.

Another group went to a plant belonging to Iraq's Chemical Industries General Company, at al-Furat 65 km south of the capital.

A fourth team visited Ibn al-Haitham research facility in Wazireyah in a northern Baghdad suburb.

Weapons experts also returned to the Tuwaitha site, 20 km south of Baghdad, to inspect it for a fourth time.

Monday 9 December

A team from Unmovic re-visited the industrial complex Fallujah, which they first inspected on Sunday.

A second team from the IAEA went to the al-Tuwaitha nuclear facility, which they had visited twice last week.

Sunday 8 December

The 17-strong UN inspection team was reinforced when 25 more inspectors flew into Baghdad.

A team of nuclear experts went to a geological studies centre at al-Sadun park in Baghdad while other specialists visited a major complex at Fallujah, north-west of the capital, which had specialised in chemical and biological arms.

Saturday 7 December

After a two-day break for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, one team of inspectors visited the al-Quds General Company for Mechanical Industries at al-Iskandariyah, south of Baghdad. The facility made medium-range missiles and bombs in the 1980s.

The IAEA team went to the al-Tuwaitha facility south of Baghdad to check for uranium storage sites.


Thursday 5 December and Friday 6 December: No inspections

Wednesday 4 December

A team of inspectors travelled to the al-Tuwaitha facility run by Iraq's nuclear power authority.

A second group headed north to the al-Muthanna site which has been associated in the past with the production of mustard gas, sarin and other agents before it was demolished by earlier inspectors.
