UPI reports:

U.N. nuclear officials discredited claims a nuclear engineer who died after a 17-story fall from the Vienna International Center was linked to talks with Iran.

In a letter to U.S. news magazine Newsweek, Annika Thunborg, a spokeswoman for the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, described Hampton as a process engineer for her organization, adding the CTBTO "never had any role in the Iran negotiations."

"Therefore, media reports linking the dead CTBTO staff member with the Iran talks are baseless and untrue," she stressed.
