Britain and France announced Tuesday that the U.S.-led Gulf War coalition will create a "no-fly" zone over southern Iraq to protect besieged Shiite Muslims there. They said they will shoot down any Iraqi aircraft that violate the zone. The word came as Bush Administration officials expressed concern over the significance of a newly rebuilt Iraqi air base in the south and over intensified Iraqi attacks on U.N. guards and relief workers in the north.
