UN inspectors visit Iran nuke facility

The World

United Nations inspectors arrived in Iran yesterday for a three-day visit of its recently-disclosed uranium enrichment facility. The visit comes after Iran said Friday that it needs more time to consider a deal to send their uranium stockpiles out of the country for monitored enrichment.
