Blair unbowed during Iraq evidence

Former British PM defends decision to join US-led invasion of Iraq.



    Tony Blair, the British former prime minister, has been answering questions as to why he took his country to war in Iraq on flawed evidence of weapons of mass destruction.

    The decision to send 45,000 British troops to Iraq in 2003 was the most controversial move of Blair's 10-year leadership.
