IAEA: Evidence of Secret Nuclear Experiments in Egypt

The International Atomic Energy Agency has found evidence of secret nuclear experiments in Egypt that could be used in weapons programs, diplomats said Tuesday. The agency also was examining evidence that suggested some work was performed as recently as a year ago. The Egyptians “tried to produce various components of uranium” without declaring it to the IAEA, as they were required to under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, one of the diplomats said. The products included several pounds of uranium metal and uranium tetrafluoride.
