Iraq inquiry: defiant Tony Blair heckled as he says 'no regrets'





A defiant Tony Blair has mounted a vigorous defence of the invasion of Iraq, telling the Chilcot Inquiry he had no regrets over removing Saddam Hussein and would do the same again.

In his long-awaited appearance before the Iraq Inquiry, the former prime minister denied he had taken the country to war on the basis of a "lie" over Saddam Hussein's supposed weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

He suggested the world could now be faced with the threat of a nuclear-armed Iraq if he and President George Bush had not taken action to confront the Iraqi dictator.
