Iraq Censured Over Missile Parts

From Times Wire Reports

The U.N. Security Council censured Iraq for refusing to allow more than 100 missile engines to be taken abroad for testing by experts, and reminded Baghdad of its obligation to comply with Persian Gulf War disarmament resolutions. The censure followed a report this month by chief U.N. weapons inspector Rolf Ekeus that he had been unable to secure permission to remove Scud missile engines and other components. A commission headed by Ekeus is seeking to account for Iraqi weapons ordered destroyed after the 1991 war.
