UN: Iran Must Explain Undeclared Site  11/21 06:14

   VIENNA (AP) -- The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency says Iran has 
not provided additional details about the discovery of uranium particles of 
man-made origin at a location that had not been declared.

   Cornel Feruta, the acting director of the International Atomic Energy 
Agency, told its board of governors Thursday that a meeting in Tehran was 
planned for next week to discuss the issue.

   Feruta reported to IAEA member states two weeks ago that his inspectors had 
confirmed traces of uranium "at a location in Iran not declared to the agency," 
which appeared to confirm allegations made by the U.S. and Israel about a 
secret nuclear warehouse.

   Feruta says "it is essential that Iran works with the agency to resolve this 
matter promptly."
