Iraq threatens Iranians with new, secret weapon

Iraq will use a new, powerful secret weapon against Iranian troops if they mount an offensive over the Iran-Iraq border today (Oct. 27), an Iraqi diplomat said in Copenhagen.

The diplomat asked for the world's forgiveness and understanding in advance of using the weapon, which he said was designed to kill hundreds of thousands of troops. He refused to divulge the nature of the weapon, but said it was neither nuclear nor chemical. He said it was produced by an unspecified Western country and was not banned by international arms conventions.
