(Newser) – Some of the International Atomic Energy Agency's top experts think Iranians hacked their cell phones and laptops, diplomats tell the AP. The incident is believed to have occurred earlier this year, when the diplomats left the equipment unattended during an inspection tour in Iran. The watchdog group became suspicious later on, when an inspector reported "unusual events" suggesting his equipment had been tampered with. The IAEA is still investigating these suspicions.
