VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran is failing to address suspicions it may have researched how to build an atomic bomb, a U.N. watchdog's report showed on Friday, potentially complicating efforts by six powers to reach a nuclear deal with Tehran.

The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran's nuclear program said Tehran had still not provided information about two specific areas of the IAEA's investigation that it was supposed to do more than two months ago.

The confidential document was issued to IAEA member states less than three weeks before a self-imposed Nov. 24 deadline for Iran and the six global powers to end a decade-old standoff over the Islamic Republic's atomic activities.
