  Peace with Iraq still possible, says Blair
Updated 13 January 2003, 17.55
Extra US troops are going to the Gulf
Prime Minister Tony Blair says peace with Iraq is still possible if Saddam Hussein gives up his weapons of mass destruction.

But he's insisted if that doesn't happen we will go to war.

At his monthly news conference Mr Blair's been explaining what would make him support war against Iraq.

More troops on their way

Extra US troops are going to the Gulf

UN inspectors have so far found nothing in their search for weapons.

Mr Blair says if they do the UN must approve a war against Iraq.

Thousands of American troops are on their way to join the 60,000 already stationed in the region.

And the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal has now left for the Gulf to support British troops there.
