  US looks at lack of Iraqi weapons
Updated 02 February 2004, 21.46
US President George Bush has ordered an investigation
US President George Bush has ordered an investigation into why no-one can find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The reason the US-led coalition invaded Iraq was because those weapons could be used by Iraq, but if they were never there it could cause big problems.

A similar investigation is likely in the UK too, with Tony Blair being asked to explain where those weapons are.

If the information about the weapons is wrong then there are worries that other intelligence could be wrong too.

A government minister has said he saw evidence that the weapons were in Iraq, and added that it was part of the decision to begin military action.

If that evidence was wrong then the government wants to know why they were told the weapons existed.

Even without the weapons the US and UK governments still say military action was the right thing to do, because it got rid of Saddam Hussein.
