The United Nations this afternoon is weighing its options in light of
today's developments in Iraq.
This morning the Iraqi government ordered all American weapons inspectors
out of the country following yesterday's Security Council resolution condemning
Baghdad and demanding it cooperate with U-N inspectors.
The expulsion was announced today on Iraqi television.
The move escalates a two- week- old crisis over arms inspections.
Iraq has turned back U-N inspections teams that included Americans ten times
during the past 11 days, including earlier today.
The U-N could decide to pull out the entire U-N weapons team.
Byron Pitts joins us with the latest.

The U-S Embassy in Pakistan is urging Americans in Karachi to stay indoors.
Four American oil workers were gunned down in the city yesterday.
A previously unknown group has claimed responsibility for the slayings, and
says there'll be more attacks if Pakistani Mir Aimal Kasi (meer eye-MAHL'
KAH'-see) gets the
death penalty for killing two C-I-A workers in the U-S.
