Iran did work 'relevant' to nuclear bomb, says UN watchdog

Iran conducted work “relevant” to developing nuclear weapons at least until late 2003, the UN watchdog said Wednesday, but it added there was no evidence such activities continued beyond 2009. The long-awaited findings come five months after Tehran and six world powers agreed a landmark deal to end the standoff over Iran’s atomic programme. “The agency assesses that a range of activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device were conducted in Iran prior to the end of 2003 as a coordinated effort, and some activities took place after 2003,” the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a report concluding a lengthy probe.
