London, June 21 (ANI): Iran has banned two UN nuclear inspectors from entering the country, risking further anger from the West over its nuclear program.

The Telegraph quoted Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, as saying that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had been informed of the decision, but did not identify the names of the inspectors being banned.

Iran said the inspectors were banned because they disclosed to the media the contents of a "false" report on the country's disputed nuclear program before the UN nuclear watchdog reviewed it. (ANI)
