  Inspectors in Iraq again for crucial talks
Updated 08 February 2003, 10.43
UN weapons inspectors are in Iraq
The top weapons inspectors in the United Nations have arrived in Iraq for crucial talks as the possibility of war continues.

The inspectors are hoping to have private meetings with Iraqi scientists, which their leader Saddam Hussein has agreed to.

They also want Saddam to allow American spy planes to fly over Iraq and to start creating laws on banning weapons of mass destruction.

Military attack

This comes as America warned that the world would know "within days or weeks" if Iraq was getting rid of its most dangerous weapons.

If it hasn't, President George W Bush has practically said they will take military action.

But some countries which belong to the United Nations are getting more and more worried about the prospect of war. Russia, France and China think the UN inspectors should be given more time before any action is taken.

However, President Bush told Saddam on Friday that "the game was over", and that he must act now to avoid a military attack.
