JERUSALEM - Close US ally Israel was unimpressed by the report.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called for the US-backed campaign to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions to press ahead regardless of the new intelligence report.

"It is vital to pursue efforts to prevent Iran from developing a capability like this and we will continue doing so along with our friends the United States," Olmert told journalists.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak told Army Radio that as far as Israel knew Iran had probably renewed its weapons programme since 2003. - Reuters
