The UN atomic agency revealed Friday that Iran received black-market designs to encase weapons-grade uranium and diplomats said they appeared to be part of blueprints for a nuclear warhead. A senior US diplomat called the find disturbing, and other diplomats accredited to the International Atomic Energy Agency said they expected the United States and its allies to use it in their push to have Tehran referred to the UN Security Council as early as next week. "You've given the world cause for concern," US State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said in Washington. "The international community doesn't like what it sees."
