    The former head of British intelligence has criticised the US-led war in Iraq in a testimony before an inquiry panel in London. 

    Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller said that the war, which was launched in 2003, was not justified because Iraq had not posed a threat to the UK at the time.

    She also said that Britain's involvement in Iraq invasion played into Osama Bin Laden's hands and radicalised British muslims.
