Untitled Document NEW DELHI: A report by Iraq’s health ministry has claimed that the US forces in Iraq had used mustard and nerve gas during their assault on Fallujah last year. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who is on a four-day visit to India, said this here on Saturday.

The Venezuelan president said, "The ministry of health of the current Iraqi government commissioned the health minister to investigate the assault on Fallujah city, which the US-led forces had attacked in November and captured it from religious extremists."

Hugo Chavez further said, "The minister’s report indicated evidence of the use of mustard gas and nerve gas as they found melted bodies in the city, where all signs of life - dogs, birds, plants, and all forms of life were destroyed."

Chavez asserted, "This is only possible with the use of mustard gas and this is a matter of concern to the whole world. The world is in serious, serious trouble.’’ There was, however, no immediate reaction in Washington or Baghdad to Chavez’s claim.
