American bombing of Iraq. The Spanish government

Iraqi people.

The Iraqi government has defended the German UN
coordinator in Iraq, Hans von Sponeck, who appears to
have fallen foul of the USA.
"We don't like to interfere in conflicts between the
USA and the UN, but we appreciate Mr. von Sponeck's
work very much", said foreign minister Mohammed Said
al Sahhaf on Wednesday in Geneva.
On Tuesday, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan had again
reaffirmed his support of von Sponeck after the
"Financial Times" had reported that the USA and UK
were pushing for his removal.
