SECRET agents have foiled an al-Qaida plot to smuggle chemical weapons from Iraq into Europe and North America.

Iraqi defence ministry spokesman Mohammed ­al-Askari said they had ­uncovered three workshops in the country that were ­being used to make killer sarin and mustard gases.

Remote-controlled toy planes were also seized at the workshops.

Five men were arrested and have all confessed to the plot.

The arrests were possible because of co-operation ­between Iraqi and foreign intelligence services, Mr Askari said.
