U-N arms inspectors visited a military complex (Karamah) in Baghdad, while another U-N team visited an alcohol factory outside the capital. The teams are looking for nuclear, biological and chemical weapons banned by U-N Security Council resolutions.
Iraq must give the Council a detailed list of its weapons programs by December eighth. The United States is threatening military action if Iraq fails to comply with U-N demands.
White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Monday President Bush is skeptical that Iraq will comply with the U-N demands, but added that it is too early to say whether Baghdad is cooperating.
Earlier Monday, U-S and British warplanes patrolling Iraq's "no-fly zones" struck military sites near Mosul in the northern part of the country in response to fire from Iraqi forces. On Sunday, residents in southern Iraq said at least four people died in Basra during a raid by coalition warplanes.
Foreign Minister Naji Sabri -- in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan -- described Sunday's raid as part of a what he termed "barbaric terrorist aggression" against Iraq.
The developments came as the British government released a report alleging human rights abuses in Iraq. The report says Iraq is a terrifying place to live and about 15 percent of the population has fled the country.
It says President Saddam is directly responsible for the human rights abuses in his country, and gives graphic details of forms of torture used in Iraq.
The human rights group Amnesty International charged the British government was manipulating the past work of human rights activists to back up the case for military action against Iraq. Amnesty noted it had been reporting widespread human rights violations in Iraq since well before the 1991 Gulf War.
