From BBC News: Colin Powell has said the United States will find ways to stop weapons inspectors going back to Iraq unless there is a new United Nations Security Council resolution on the issue.

Addressing a Congressional committee, Mr Powell said the Security Council must spell out to Iraq the serious consequences if it fails to co-operate with the inspectors - that any new UN resolution must spell out the "decisive consequences" Baghdad would face if it fails to disarm. He said Washington would find ways to thwart any attempt to return the inspectors without any such resolution.
