VIENNA - The UN atomic agency said on Thursday that Libya's previous government had stored raw uranium near Sabha, after CNN reported that anti-Gaddafi forces had found a military site containing what appeared to be radioactive material.

The CNN report and the comment by the International Atomic Energy Agency seemed to contradict a US statement last month that Libya's store of so-called yellow cake was held at the Tajura nuclear research facility near Tripoli.

CNN said military forces loyal to Libya's National Transitional Council took its television crew to the site near the town of Sabha in the Sahara desert.

The new government says it is consolidating its grip on Sabha and other oasis towns in the south of Libya which had sided with former strongman Muammar Gaddafi.
