Iraq Weapons Inspectors Set to Arrive

More staff and equipment have arrived at the UN monitoring agency in Baghdad. A UN spokesman says a half-dozen staff members, along with communications gear and computers, have been flown in from Cyprus.

18 weapons inspectors are scheduled to arrive Monday. Inspectors are set to resume their hunt next week for any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The first inspection will probably take place Wednesday, when a UN team is expected to revisit one of the many sites inspected in the 1990s. An advance team of weapons inspectors arrived in Baghdad last Monday. About three dozen staff members are now in Baghdad.
