TEHRAN — Iran's intelligence chief accused the UN nuclear watchdog agency of sending spies in the guise of inspectors to gather information about Iran's nuclear activities, state TV reported Saturday.

The claim was another sign that Iran has hardened its stance since the assassination a week ago of a prominent nuclear scientist and the wounding of another. Iran is to hold talks on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva with world powers trying to persuade it to curtail key elements of its nuclear work.

Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi said staff sent by the International Atomic Energy Agency had engaged in espionage and the Vienna-based agency must take responsibility for their actions. He did not elaborate or identify the inspectors Iran was accusing.
