Deadline passed, no sign of breakthrough in Iran nuclear probe

VIENNA - Iran may have failed to meet a deadline for addressing UN concerns about suspected nuclear bomb research, but it could still act to influence a key report due next week, diplomatic sources said on Wednesday.


The sources, who follow the nuclear issue but declined to be identified, said they had seen no indications so far that Tehran had replied in substance to questions from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by the agreed Aug. 25 date.
