U.N. nuclear chief says Iran agrees to probe of suspected weapons work

The chief of the U.N. nuclear agency said Tuesday that he has reached a deal with Iran on probing its suspected work on nuclear weapons and that the agreement will "be signed quite soon."

Nuclear inspectors have been trying to gain wider access to Iranian atomic facilities. It's the first time since 2007 that Iran, which says its nuclear work is for exclusively peaceful purposes, has accepted wider inspections.

Several Obama administration officials and Western diplomats said the U.S. and the five other major powers that will hold talks in Baghdad won't give the Islamic Republic relief from oil and financial sanctions that are hobbling its economy, though they have agreed on confidence- building measures they may offer in response to Iranian concessions.
