ElBaradei: "Probe into alleged nuclear work in Syria delayed because the agency's contact man, Gen. Mohammed Sleiman's murder.."

"The UN atomic watchdog's probe into alleged illicit nuclear work in Syria has been delayed because the agency's contact man in Syria was murdered, IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei revealed Thursday..."
"...The frequently unreliable Israeli intelligence website Debka was the first to drew a similar connection between Suleiman and Syria's alleged nuclear program very shortly after its death, alleging that the official was the guy in charge of security at the Al Kibar site.
But it also didn't help the IAEA investigation that Israeli air strikes blew the site to smithereens a year ago, ElBaradei said, making it tough for inspectors to figure out what was there..."
