Taiwan firm: China got Iran part with nuke uses

• AP
A Taiwanese company agreed to a request from a firm in China to procure sensitive components with nuclear uses, then shipped them to Iran, the firm's head said Friday. Such transactions violate U.N. sanctions imposed on the Middle Eastern nation.

The admission by Steven Lin of Hsinchu-based Heli-Ocean Technology Co. Ltd. comes amid an international effort led by the United States to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. While Lin said he didn't know whether the parts - a vital component in the production of weapons-grade uranium - were eventually used by Iran militarily, he did acknowledge that they have nuclear applications.

BTW, I guess you haven't heard:  Iran is yestereday's news.  Today's news is Yemen.  Who knows what tomorrow's will be but, without a doubt, they'll have oil.
