The International Atomic Energy Agency is looking into reports from its experts which allege that cellular phones and mobile computers may have been hacked by Iranian officials searching for sensitive information while equipment was left unsupervised while the organization visited Iran's various uranium enrichment facilities, according to a report by the Associated Press.

One diplomat said that the Vienna-based agency is investigating "a range of events, ranging from those where it is certain something has happened to suppositions," all which occurred during the first three months of the year, AP reported.

He added that the agency was put on alert after inspectors reported "unusual events" and suggested that their electronic equipment may have been tampered with.
