[casi] Scientist Leaves Homes with Inspectors

Iraqi scientist leaves home with U-N inspectors

(Baghdad, Iraq-AP) -- An Iraqi scientist carrying a box of documents has left
his home in Baghdad with U-N weapons inspectors.
The physicist left today after what appeared to be a heated discussion
between Iraqi officials and U-N weapons experts. There's no word on where the
scientist is being taken or what inspectors found, if anything.
Earlier, inspectors were seen going through documents at a table set up near
the scientist's front door.
The inspectors arrived at the residential district in western Baghdad this
morning -- along with journalists and Iraqi escorts. An Iraqi official says
they entered the homes of two scientists.
The inspectors spent about six hours in the two houses before leaving with
one of the scientists.
Before driving off with the man in a convoy of U-N, Iraqi and reporters
vehicles, an inspection team leader could be heard telling Iraqi officials,
"I'm not happy about all of this."
