UN nuclear chief expresses concern for Iran inspectors

The head of the UN nuclear agency suggested Thursday that his inspectors in Iran are coming under increased duress amid fears that Tehran might be aspiring to make atomic arms.


This was the first time Yukiya Amano expressed concern for the IAEA experts in Iran, telling reporters that his agency is "giving high priority for the safety of our inspectors and we are taking all the measures needed to protect them." When asked for details, he said the pressure on the inspectors was "difficult to define." (AP)
