VIENNA - Iran accused the UN nuclear watchdog of a cynical approach and mismanagement on Monday in an unusually strong outburst in such an international forum.

Iran's atomic energy agency chief, Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani, suggested that "terrorists and saboteurs" might have infiltrated the agency, which is investigating Tehran's disputed atomic activities.

He also told the annual member state gathering of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that the agency was influenced by "certain states", a clear reference to Tehran's Western foes.
