Report Says British Prime Minister Tony Blair Ordered Report on Illegality of Iraq War Destroyed

London, November 2 (RHC)-- A British newspaper is reporting officials under former British Prime Minister Tony Blair were told to destroy a secret document questioning the legality of the Iraq War less than three weeks before the 2003 invasion.

Citing an anonymous top official, The Mail on Sunday says ministers were ordered to "burn" a report by Attorney General Lord Goldsmith that suggested the war could be illegal under international law.

A spokesperson for Blair has dismissed the report as "nonsense."
