Video: Iraq War - A timeline of events from war to the Chilcot Inquiry


A timeline illustrating the events that led to the official inquiry into the 2003 Iraq war and its subsequent delays before publication in 2016.

The long-awaited official inquiry report into Britain's bitterly contested invasion of Iraq will finally be published on Wednesday amid calls for Tony Blair to be held to account for taking the country to war.

Thirteen years after British troops crossed into Iraq and seven years after the inquiry began work, Sir John Chilcot will deliver his verdict on the UK's most controversial military engagement of the post-war era.
