Weapons inspectors `to go back to Baghdad'.

UN weapons experts say they are ready to resume work in Iraq even though airstrikes damaged monitoring equipment at many suspected sites.

Charles Duelfer, the deputy chairman of the UN Special Commission - or UNSCOM - said that the Security Council's resolutions on disarming Iraq "have not changed".

But he did not say how the inspectors could operate when Iraq had vowed not to let weapons inspectors back in after last month's airstrikes.

Many defence sites containing UNSCOM monitoring equipment were destroyed in the strikes, launched after Iraq refused to co-operate with weapons inspections.

Mr Duelfer said: "Monitoring must be carried out."

Trade sanctions on Iraq will not be lifted until it is proved Iraq has no more nuclear, chemical or biological weapons and long range missiles.
