More than six years after the invasion of Iraq, a long-awaited inquiry into Britain’s role in the war has opened in London. On its first day, it heard from senior civil servants and a former intelligence chief. The former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is also being called as a witness. Naomi Grimley reports.


The first day of this inquiry looked at how British and American attitudes towards Iraq began to shift in early 2001. Former officials told how they are being growing frustration in London that the old policy of containing Saddam Hussein wasn’t working. But the inquiry heard that British diplomats were still reluctant to embrace a policy of regime change despite what warm witness called the drumbeats from Washington. Earlier the inquiry’s Chairman Sir John Chilcot said his final report wouldn’t shy away from making criticisms of individuals, if they were warranted.

Pirates have attacked an oil tanker near the West African state of Benin. It was sailing from Nigeria’s Niger Delta region when it was attacked. A crew member was killed and the contents of the ship's safe was stolen. This report from Casper Leighton.

The pirates who are believed to be from Nigeria, aboarded the ship in darkness after coming along side in a speed boat. It’s not clear how the crew member lost his life but it seems there wasn’t an attempt to confront the armed pirates as one of them was captured by the ship’s crew and handed to local authorities. Medics on the German owned tanker said four other crew members were injured in the attack. There is increasing concern about rising piracy off the coast of West African as the region grows an importance as an oil producer.

A Sudanese woman convicted of breaching the country’s decency laws by wearing trousers has defied a travel ban by going to France to publicize her new book. Lubna Hussein, a journalist who worked for the UN, faced 40 lashes for wearing trousers in public. But in September, a Sudanese court ordered her to pay a fine instead. Refusing to pay the fine, she chose to serve a day's imprisonment.
