NPR''s Mike Shuster reports that 17 international experts on chemical weapons have confirmed results of a U.S. laboratory test, which found that Iraq used the deadly V-X nerve gas in its missile warheads before the Persian Gulf War. The experts reported their findings to the U.N. Security Council yesterday. Iraq has always insisted that its warheads did not contain any V-X, which is the deadliest known form of nerve gas.
