Kelly’s funeral ushers in Beeb probe

World Brief

Scientist David Kelly, the BBC’s sole source for its “sexed up” Iraqi dossier report, will be buried on Aug. 6 near his home in Longworth, Oxfordshire.

Kelly was found dead two days after giving evidence to the Foreign Affairs Select Committee about his conversations with BBC defense correspondent Andrew Gilligan.

Gilligan’s report on Radio 4’s “Today” program accused the government of exaggerating evidence to suggest that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes.

The funeral frees up Judge James Edward Hutton to begin his judicial inquiry, which formally opens Friday but was awaiting the burial of the Ministry of De-fense weapons expert before getting under way.
