    [07] November 17 trial continues with testimony by Kondilis

    Today's session on the November 17th terrorist group trial was completed with the testimony of defendant Sotiris Kondilis. The defendant admitted that he was a member of the group and his participation in two of its acts, in addition to the shootout between police and 17N members at Sepolia, Athens in 1991.

    Kondilis maintained he always thought he was going to admit his 17N membership in the event he was arrested since, as he pointed out, the actions of the November 17th organization were politically motivated.

    [09] Britain's PM denies hyping Iraq threat; British soldier killed

    British Prime Minister Tony Blair, summoned to a judicial inquiry today, denied aides hyped intelligence reports to justify invading Iraq as the death of another British soldier there underlined the cost of the war. Blair told the inquiry into the suicide of a scientist at the centre of a vicious row between the government and the BBC over the Iraq war that if a BBC report that spy agency data had been "sexed up" had been true he would have resigned. Blair, only the second British premier to be called before such an inquiry, conceded his Labour administration had issued a controversial dossier last year on the threat from Iraq under intense public pressure to justify going to war.

    A few hours before Blair appeared in a packed courtroom at London's Royal Courts of Justice, gunmen killed a British soldier in southern Iraq. Four U.S. soldiers were wounded today when a bomb exploded in Falluja, a hotbed of anti-occupation sentiment west of Baghdad.
