Britain Grants 'Dolly' Scientist Cloning License

Yep, it's reported in the NYT: "The British government gave the scientist whose team cloned Dolly the sheep a license on Tuesday to clone human embryos for research.
Dr. Ian Wilmut, who led the Dolly team at the Roslin Institute in Scotland in 1996, and Dr. Christopher Shaw, a motor neuron expert of the Institute of Psychiatry in London, plan to clone embyros to study how nerve cells go awry to cause motor neuron diseases. The experiments do not involve creating cloned babies."
