IAEA deadlocked on Iran; presses Syria for info

VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- The U.N. nuclear watchdog agency says its probe into Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program is deadlocked. It also reports that a Syrian site bombed by Israel had the characteristics of a nuclear reactor.

The conclusions are contained in twin reports presented Wednesday by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Obtained by The Associated Press, the confidential documents are being shared with the 35 nations on the IAEA board. The Iran report also goes to the U.N. Security Council.

On Iran, the agency also notes Tehran continues expanding its uranium enrichment program in defiance of three sets of Security Council sanctions.
