Blix suspects US bugged office and home before Iraq war
Former chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix said on Saturday he suspected the United States bugged his office and home in the run-up to the Iraq war, but had no hard evidence.
Describing such behaviour as "disgusting", Blix told Britain's Guardian newspaper in an interview: "It feels like an intrusion in to your integrity in a situation when you are actually on the same side."
Blix said his suspicions were raised when he had trouble with a telephone connection at home. "It might have been something trivial or it might have been something installed somewhere, I don't know," he told the British daily.
