Egypt admits atom report 'errors'

Egypt has said it failed to disclose the full extent of its nuclear activities to the UN's atomic watchdog.

Egyptian officials said the failure arose because of a misunderstanding over exactly what had to be disclosed.

They insisted that Egypt was fully co-operating with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and its nuclear programme was peaceful.

Western diplomats recently said IAEA inspectors in Egypt had visited a laboratory used to reprocess plutonium.

A senior official from Egypt's atomic energy programme said on Friday that the IAEA had asked it to "take some corrective steps in declaring research activities".
