Iranian nuclear weapons resolution passed by UN agency

The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency passed a resolution Saturday mandating a review of Iran's nuclear program, and requiring Teheran to halt all uranium enrichment activities by a November 25th deadline. The resolution is a compromise between a US demand to enlist the UN Security Council in supervision and a more lenient approach favored by most European countries.

UPDATE: The resolution is now online from the IAEA here [PDF].
