Reuters exclusively reports that IAEA finds uranium traces at two sites Iran barred it from

Reuters exclusively reported that the U.N. nuclear watchdog found uranium particles at two Iranian sites it inspected after months of stonewalling and it is preparing to rebuke Tehran for failing to explain. The sites where the material was found are believed to be inactive for nearly two decades. Seven diplomats told Reuters the agency will use the opportunity to rebuke Iran for failing to explain to its satisfaction how the uranium particles wound up at two undeclared sites. They expect the agency to call Iran out for having failed to explain the traces found at the two sites, as well as over its continued failure to explain material found previously at another site in Tehran, Turqazabad.
