Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Iraq Report, April 2001:

August Hanning, the director of the German intelligence service BND, told Hamburg’s “Welt am Sonntag” on 22 April that Iraq is developing a new class of chemical weapons. He said that several companies have delivered to Baghdad components needed for the production of poison gas. And he warned that Iraq is now working hard on missiles that could reach as far as Germany in the future. He said: “We must assume that these weapons will be ready for use by 2015 at the latest.” Hanning said that Germany has handed over its data to the United Nations.
