The BBC says:

Iran has said it will no longer allow snap inspections of its nuclear sites, after the UN nuclear watchdog voted to report Tehran to the Security Council.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ordered the country's nuclear agency to end inspections from Sunday.

Iran also plans to press ahead with full-scale uranium enrichment.

The move to report Tehran, agreed by 27 of the 35 states on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), could lead to possible sanctions against Iran.

"Because of the resolution of the IAEA... the organisation should stop voluntary implementation of the additional protocol and other co-operation from Sunday," Mr Ahmadinejad said.

Of course Iran did say they would do this. This is what happens when jerks, i.e. Bush and Blair, run the world. They will only be happy when they start yet another unnecessary war. Obviously their misadventure in Iraq has taught them no lessons.
