"Critics try to sway debate on US-India nuclear deal," Reuters.

Nearly 100 nongovernmental organizations and 25 individuals made their case in a letter to the 45 nations of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which governs international nuclear trade, and to some board members of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog.

[The letter calls on the IAEA and the NSG to ensure that the deal does not jeopardize the international nonproliferation regime. It calls on India to stop producing fissile material for atomic bombs and to permanently end nuclear testing.In India, the deal is criticized by the Communist coalition members of the ruling Congress Party, who believe it would infringe on Indian sovereignty. -jlt]
