IAEA Assembling Special Team on Iranian Nuclear Program

The International Atomic Energy Agency is establishing a special team to deal with the Iranian nuclear development program, according to a Thursday report by the Associated Press. The team will include experts in the field of military nuclear applications, intelligence analysis and radiation testing.

It is an unusual step for the United Nations watchdog, but analysts comment that this shows the urgency which the agency attaches to the issue.
