22 July 2003. Thanks to D., moved page 6 to properly follow page 1.

22 July 2003. Add translations of documents by Lars Vonpacker, who writes:

As you can see from the translation, it's a really bad case of trying to make these documents pass as official government communications.

While doing the translation, I stayed true to the essence of the French text.

The French of the documents sounds as if it comes right out of a Babelfish translation.

Source of the 8 images: Robert Windrem, NBC News, which received them from La Repubblica.

PDF of the eight images: http://cryptome.org/niger-docs.pdf  (135KB)

Five of these images appeared in hardcopy of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica on July 16, 2003. The online story without the images:

They are reportedly portions of forged documents on supply of uranium materials by Niger to Iraq and were allegedly provided by Italian intelligence, SISMI, to British intelligence, MI6.

Cryptome published the five La Repubblica images on July 18:
