UN nuclear agency team arrives in Tehran
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) experts came to the Iranian capital less than a week after a US intelligence report said Iran has stopped nuclear work since 2003.

"These negotiations ... will start tomorrow and will last three days," Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's envoy to the Vienna-based IAEA, told Fars News Agency.

US President George W. Bush has said Iran remains a danger because it is mastering technology with a military use. Iran insists its nuclear programme is peaceful.

This week's sessions are expected to focus on questions about particles of arms-grade enriched uranium found by IAEA inspectors at Tehran's Technical University.
