CNN TV Expelled From Baghdad - 2003-03-21

U.S. cable television channel CNN says Iraq has expelled its four-person team from Baghdad.

CNN correspondent Nic Robertson, who is part of the team, said the order is effective immediately and that he and his team would leave at the first opportunity.

No details were given as to why Iraqi authorities were expelling the team.

CNN remained in Baghdad after most other American news agencies sent their correspondents and crews out of the Iraqi capital.
