IAEA report to detail efforts by Iran to develop nuclear weapon

By CNN Senior State Department Producer Elise Labott

The diplomats said that the report, expected to be released by the United Nations nuclear watchdog next week, will include more data than the organization has released on clandestine efforts by Iran to develop technologies to build a nuclear weapon, including computer models of a nuclear warhead. They argue the IAEA studies offer no other explanation for those efforts beyond Iran seeking to develop a nuclear weapon.
