Britain broke international law when it invaded Iraq in 2003, its deputy prime minister at the time, John Prescott, said Sunday in the wake of a critical report on the decision to go to war.A seven-year inquiry concluded Wednesday that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's justification, planning and handling of the Iraq War involved a catalog of failures, but did not rule whether the war was legal.Many Britons want Blair to face criminal action over his decision to take military action that led to the deaths of 179 British soldiers and more than 150,000 Iraqi civilians over the following six years.Prescott added that he backed the decision by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn -- a veteran anti-war campaigner and critic of Blair -- to apologize for the war on behalf of the party.
