IAEA warns of secret "activities" in Iran

Head of nuclear inspections at the International Atomic Energy Agency Herman Nackaerts has been reported as saying there are ongoing "actitities" at Parchin in Iran which the IAEA are currently unable to inspect. Iran insists that its nuclear work is entirely peaceful but despite two rounds of talks, refuses to allow inspectors into their nuclear facility at Parchin.

A previous IAEA report claims they have information to the effect that Iran has built a containment chamber at Parchin, something which would be needed to conduct tests necessary to develop a nuclear weapon. According to the IAEA, there are "strong indicators of possible weapon development" in Iran.
