"U.N. Report: Iran Stockpiling Nuclear Materials"

"Iran is steadily stockpiling enriched uranium, even in the face of toughened international sanctions, according to a U.N. inspection report that raises new concerns about the ability to monitor parts of the Islamic nation's nuclear program that could be used to make a bomb.

Citing a broad pattern of obstruction, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Monday that it cannot confirm quantities of certain nuclear materials, has a growing list of unanswered questions about enrichment sites and disagrees sharply with Iran's recent decision to eject two inspectors.

Overall, the agency 'remains concerned about the possible existence in Iran of past or undisclosed nuclear related activities involving military organizations,' according to the report, including the possible 'development of a nuclear payload for a missile.'"
