UN Censures Iraq

UNITED NATIONS -- Iraq is still refusing to disclose fully key details of its banned biological weapons program and is imposing new restrictions on UN inspectors, the United Nations said in a report circulated Tuesday.

Last June, the Security Council threatened to consider new sanctions against President Saddam Hussein's government if inspectors did not report Iraq was cooperating with UN weapons inspectors by the October progress report.

It is now up to the United States and Britain, Iraq's chief critics on the council, to decide whether to ask the body to consider new sanctions, a move which could be opposed by China and others.
