India in nuclear inspection deal

India has signed an agreement with the UN atomic watchdog to allow inspections of its civilian nuclear plants.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Mohamed ElBaradei and Indian Ambassador Saurabh Kumar signed the accord in Vienna.

The deal requires India to make 14 of its 22 nuclear reactors subject to non-proliferation inspections by 2014.

It is seen as a key step to implementing a controversial civilian nuclear accord with the US.
