About 18 miles south of Baghdad, at Al-Tuwaitha, U.S. Marines were guarding a vast nuclear facility that had belonged to the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Wednesday that Marines had located an underground complex at Al-Tuwaitha that included warehouses and bombproof offices. The newspaper also reported that high levels of radiation were detected in several buildings at Al-Tuwaitha.
The site had been examined numerous times by U.N. weapons inspectors, but they reported no evidence of weapons of mass destruction.
Interesting that AP is merely citing the Pittsburgh Tribune article. Is there no confirmation for this story? What's up with Fox news??
