Following Friday's report by U.N. arms inspectors, the U.N. Security Council seems more divided than ever on the issue of how to disarm Saddam Hussein. France, Russia and Germany, backed by China, say they will block any attempt to authorize war. The U.S. and Britain press for a vote on a compromise resolution in the coming week. Hear NPR's Scott Simon and NPR's Vicky O'Hara.
