In Britain, more than 10,000 people have signed a petition demanding the British Parliament "hold Tony Blair to account" for the country’s participation in the 2003 Iraq War. British law requires the government issue a formal reply to the request. There have been renewed calls for Blair to face trial after the release of the Chilcot report earlier this month, which presented evidence Blair had misled the country in making the case for war.
