Israel accuses IAEA chief of bias on Syria

Israel is accusing the head of the UN atomic agency of bias in his probe of allegations that Syria hid nuclear activities that could be used to make weapons. Israel's chief delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency says IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei's repeated calls for Israeli cooperation in the probe are redundant. He also accuses ElBaradei of refusing to meet with Israeli officials and says that shows ElBaradei has no interest in further information. Israel Michaeli made the unusually blunt comments Thursday at an IAEA board meeting.
