UN weapons experts going to Tehran

  VIENNA (AP) -- Diplomats say the U.N. nuclear agency is including two senior weapons experts on a mission to Iran on Saturday.

The move is an unusually clear statement on the team's prime focus -- wresting information from Iranian officials on suspicions the country has secretly worked on atomic arms.

Iran has flatly refused to discuss such allegations for more than three years.

But diplomats on Friday told The Associated Press that the weapons experts were part of the U.N. team and that Iran had accepted their inclusion after some initial resistance.

They asked for anonymity because their information is confidential.
