A new and seemingly promising U.N probe of allegations that Iran worked on atomic arms has stalled, diplomats say, leaving investigators not much further than where they started a decade ago and dampening U.S. hopes of reaching an overarching deal with Tehran by a November deadline. Expectations were high just two weeks ago, when chief U.N. nuclear inspector Yukiya Amano emerged from talks in Tehran with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani saying Iran had given "a firm commitment" to cooperation and suggesting that years of deadlock had been broken.Now two diplomats have told the Associated Press that the International Atomic Energy Agency will issue a confidential report this week saying Iran hasn't provided information to substantially advance the probe, a finding that could affect talks between Iran and six major powers.Iran denies wanting – or ever having worked on – nuclear arms.
