EU may target Iran with new sanctions in weeks

BRUSSELS - European Union governments could approve a new package of sanctions against Iran in the coming weeks, after a UN report said Tehran has worked to design atom bombs, EU diplomats said on Thursday.
Preliminary discussions among EU capitals on new measures have already started and diplomats said plans may be formalized by the Dec. 1 meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.
"Experts are discussing a number of options on the table but it is difficult to foresee the outcome of the debate," one EU diplomat said, adding it was not clear when consensus might be found. Another EU diplomat said he expected a formal decision to be reached on Dec. 1.
