NPR's Mike Shuster reports that the United Nations Security Council continues to search for a director to head the new weapons inspection team that was created last month. So far, 25 nominations have been considered and rejected. The latest candidate nominated was Rolf Ekeus, the Swedish Ambassador to the U.S. He led the former UN inspection team from 1991 to 1996. Iraq's disapproval of Ekeus led to objections by Russia, China and France.
