Update: The plot to bomb Aljazeera

The BBC: "The head of al-Jazeera is delivering a letter to Tony Blair demanding the facts on reports that President Bush suggested bombing the Arab TV station. He wants a memo published which is alleged to show Tony Blair dissuaded President Bush from bombing its HQ... Wadah Khanfar is calling for the facts to be made public and urgent talks... Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme, Mr Khanfar said: 'Al- Jazeera is in the foremost of free form and democracy in the Arab world and therefore this news that we have heard is very concerning. So we demand a proper explanation and we would like to know the facts about this letter.'"
