 Iran's nuclear chief says a malicious computer worm known as Stuxnet has not harmed the country's atomic program.

Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi says details about the virus became known only after Iran's "enemies failed to achieve their goals."

Salehi's remarks on Tuesday came a day after diplomats told The Associated Press in Vienna that Iran's nuclear program has suffered a recent setback, with major technical problems forcing the temporary shutdown of thousands of centrifuges enriching uranium.
