Nato opens Iraq training centre

"Nato has opened a new training centre for Iraqi forces in the heavily-guarded Green Zone in the centre of Baghdad.
Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer - who spoke at the inauguration - said 100 Iraqi officers would be trained at the centre by the end of the year.

Washington has been pushing Nato to take on a bigger role in Iraq.

Meanwhile, UN officials urged countries with Iraqi asylum seekers not to send them home, warning that most of Iraq is as dangerous as it was a year ago."
