VIENNA - Western states are expected to push for Syria to be referred to the UN Security Council after UN inspectors gave independent support to US allegations that Damascus was building a covert nuclear reactor, diplomats say.

In a report to member states on Tuesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency's chief assessed that a site in the Syrian desert bombed to rubble by Israel was "very likely" to have been a reactor that should have been declared to the IAEA.
