Blair tells inquiry: 9/11 changed risk from WMD


Tony Blair has told the Iraq inquiry his view of perceived threats from WMD changed after 9/11.

He said he believed terrorists would use chemical and biological weapons because "if those people inspired by this religious fanaticism could have killed 30,000 they would have.

"My view was you could not take risks with this issue at all."
