TV presenter apologises for backing weapons claims:

"A conservative TV news anchor in the United States has apologised to his viewers for supporting pre-war claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

"Bill O'Reilly is the anchor of his own show on Fox News.
He says he is sorry he gave the US Government the benefit of the doubt over claims that Saddam Hussein's weapons program posed an imminent threat to the world - the main reason cited for going to war.

"Mr O'Reilly says he has become much more sceptical about the Bush administration since former weapons inspector David Kay said he did not think Saddam had any weapons of mass destruction."
