The inspectors began their work on 27 November
BBC News Online lists the locations visited by United Nations teams in Iraq in the first week of weapons inspections:

Tuesday 3 December

United Nations arms experts entered the Sijood palace in the Karkh district of Baghdad - the first of Saddam Hussein's presidential palaces to be inspected since the resumption of inspections.

Monday 2 December

Monitors searched the Karamah compound, run by Iraq's Military Industrialisation Commission in the Wazireyah district of Baghdad.

Other arms experts visited three alcohol factories near Bakuba just north of Baghdad, at least one of which had never been inspected by UN teams before.

Sunday 1 December

Inspectors visited an airstrip at Khan Bani Saad 30km (20 miles) north east of Baghdad, and inspected crop spraying helicopters.

The site was declared by Iraq in 1988 to have been used in the development biological weapons.

Another team went to the Ibn Firnas military industrial compound at Rashdiya 20km (12 miles) north east of the capital.

Saturday 30 November

An inspections team visited the chemical defence battalion at Balad, 90km north of Baghdad.

The site is used to train military personnel in anti-chemical, biological and radiological defence measures.

A separate team from the International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA) inspected two sites: Um al-Maarik and al-Meelad, where the former al-Furat Uranium enrichment centrifuge was located.


Friday 29 November: No inspections

Thursday 28 November

One team visited an animal vaccine production plant in al-Dora, south of Baghdad.

The team at first walked in a field surrounding the main building, checking huge water tanks.

They then spent 20 minutes inside a warehouse before entering the main building.

Another group went to the al-Nasser factory in the Taji area, about 25km north of the capital.

Wednesday 27 November

A team of inspectors visited the al-Tahadi factory in the al-Rashad suburb, north-east of Baghdad.

A second group travelled to inspect a graphite plant at al-Amariyah, south-west of the capital.
