Atomic agency warned US about explosives

The U.N. nuclear agency said Thursday it warned the United States about the vulnerability of explosives stored at Iraq's Al-Qaqaa military installation after another facility - Iraq's main nuclear complex - was looted in April 2003.

Melissa Fleming, a spokeswoman for the International Atomic Energy Agency, said that US officials were cautioned directly about what was stored at Al-Qaqaa, the main high explosives facility in Iraq.
