Papers focus on Iraq legal advice
The legal advice given to the government by the Attorney General in the run-up to the Iraq war is considered in Sunday's papers.

The Mail on Sunday reports that Lord Goldsmith set out six reasons why the war could breach international laws.

The Independent on Sunday carries a similar story and claims an Arabic language version of the Iraq dossier differed from the English version.

It says the changes were an attempt to make it more acceptable to an Arab audience.

Campbell memo

The Sunday Times carries a memo by Labour's chief election strategist, Alastair Campbell, setting out his private views on the party's campaign.

He is said to believe Labour's battle to win public favour is "largely done" as Michael Howard's "nastiness", as he puts it, is ruining the Tory campaign.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Telegraph and the Sunday Express lead with Conservative demands for an apology from the BBC.

It comes after three hecklers with microphones attended a Tory meeting.

Olympic bid

The News of the World and the Mail on Sunday report that stabbing victim Abigail Witchalls was pregnant with her second child at the time.

The papers do not know whether Mrs Witchalls, who was attacked in front of her son, has managed to keep the baby.

And the Independent on Sunday focuses on the London 2012 Olympics bid.

It reports on the withdrawal of a package of incentives for athletes and sports organisations due to a fear of breaking the rules.

Lottery win

The Sunday Times says a foreign company run from the Philippines has won a 16m jackpot on the lottery.

The paper says a British man was used to buy thousands of tickets and it was the first time overseas gamblers are known to have won the top prize.

And there is no sign of an election on the front pages of the People and the Star Sunday .

Instead, they carry allegations about the private lives of some of the stars of ITV reality show Hell's Kitchen.
