U.N. nuclear inspectors visited an Iranian uranium mine for the first time in nearly a decade on Wednesday, Iranian media reported, as Tehran gradually opens up its disputed nuclear program to greater international scrutiny.

A three-member team from the International Atomic Energy Agency went to the Gchine mine near the southern Gulf port city of Bandar Abbas, a spokesman for Iran's atomic energy organization said. The IAEA was last there in 2005. 

They "are now conducting their inspection," Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted as saying on the website of Press TV, Iran's English-language state television.
