    An Iraqi engineer arrives in Germany in late 1999 and applies for asylum. He immediately provides the German Intelligence Service, BND, a detailed account of Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. His most famous account is that of seven mobile biological weapons trucks which could function as small factories and be driven around in Iraq. The tale includes an account of a serious accident resulting in a number of deaths.
