Dangerous Chemicals Found at UN
Several vials of potentially dangerous chemicals have been found at a United Nations building in New York. The material, said to include phosgene, is said to have been removed from Iraq during inspections of chemical facilities a decade ago. The UN said the vials had been found by inspectors as they cleared out an office near the UN's headquarters. The material could be potentially hazardous according to a UN spokeswoman but did not pose any immediate risk.
