IRAQ TURNING ROCKETS TOXIC? U.N. inspectors in Iraq have "discovered a new variety of rocket seemingly configured to strew bomblets filled with chemical or biological agents," the New York Times reports.The weapon appears to be a modified version of Iraq's "FROG" rocket."At first, Iraq told the inspectors that it was designed as a conventional cluster bomb, which would scatter explosive submunitions over its target," the Times says. "(But) the distinctive appearance of the rockets' cluster munitions, heavy metal, (soccer-sized) balls with holes in them, suggested their use as a way to disperse chemical or biological weapons."
