DUBAI - An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) official believed to be part of a nuclear inspection team working in Iran was killed in a car accident on Tuesday, Iranian media reported.

The South Korean national was traveling near the Arak heavy water plant at midday local time when the car skidded and rolled over, Fars News quoted Iran's Atomic Energy organization as saying.

Iranian media reported a Slovakian IAEA official who was also in the car was taken to hospital for treatment.

The IAEA had no immediate comment. The agency carries out regular inspections of Iran's nuclear sites and often sends inspectors to Iran to visit some of its atomic installations.
