Tony Blair 'right to remove' Saddam Hussein


Tony Blair has said he would still have invaded Iraq even if he had known Saddam Hussein did not hold weapons of mass destruction.

The former prime minister says he "would still have thought it right to remove" the Iraqi dictator from power.

Mr Blair is expected to give evidence to the Chilcot inquiry in 2010.
