Iran has agreed to give the UN nuclear agency "information and explanations" about "exploding bridge wire detonators" as part of "seven practical measures to be implemented by Iran", the International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA) has said.

The IAEA is currently investigating whether Tehran may have carried out nuclear research and the designing of an atomic bomb.

Iran has rejected any accusation it is working to develop nuclear weapons, agreeing to cooperate with IAEA to clear any "ambiguities".
