 Authorities are trying to learn more about the woman who forced US Airways1 flight bound to North Carolina to divert to an airport in Maine after she displayed what authorities described as suspicious behavior. The aircraft out of Paris, France, landed safely in Bangor today. NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston details what trigger the alarm.

Senior line enforcement officials told us that there was a woman on the plane who sent a note up to a flight attendant. And that note said “I have an implanted device of some sort that could bring down the plane.” And that’s what said of the event. Doctors reportedly checked out the woman and found no signs of recent scars. House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King says the woman is a Cameroon born French citizen, who is traveling sole without checked baggage. Officials say they do not believe the woman was part of a terrorist plot.
In Vienna, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency says he has reached a deal with Iran to renew an investigation2 into Iran’s possible past work on components3 of a nuclear weapon. But NPR’s Mike Shuster tells us the agreement is still tentative(试探(性)的).
For years, the IAEA has been trying to convince Iran to let it proceed with the investigation which is based on a thousand pages of intelligents. The agency also has evidence that Iran intermittently4 pursues studies and experiments on a variety of technologies that could be connected to nuclear weapons. But until now, Tehran has resisted cooperating with the IAEA. Now, on the eve of major talks with six world powers including the US, Iran is signaling it may cooperate. Returning from Tehran, the agency’s director Yukiya Amano said the deal is within reach, but conceded it was not finalized5. Amano wants Iran to allow agency and investigators6 to visit suspicious sites and a tour to get scientists and engineers connected to the nuclear program. Mike Shuster, NPR news.
