    Iran is suspected of conducting secret experiments whose sole purpose can only be the development of nuclear arms, a United Nations watchdog has reportedly said.

    The fears were said to have been revealed in an International Atomic Energy Agency report that has just been distributed to the agency's 35-nation board and UN Security Council.
    The report is understood to claim that while some of the suspected secret nuclear work by Iran can have peaceful purposes, "others are specific to nuclear weapons."
    And a 13-page attachment to the document reportedly details intelligence and IAEA research that shows Tehran working on all aspects of research toward making a nuclear weapon - including fitting a warhead onto a missile.
    US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said: "This was released to member states about an hour ago so we're going to take some time to look at it before commenting.
    "We are not prepared to talk about any next steps at this point."
