U.N. Meeting Over Iran Delayed

Yahoo News:
A top-level meeting of the U.N. Security Council's five permanent members and Germany to discuss the Iranian nuclear standoff has been postponed while the United States seeks to harden proposed penalties if Tehran does not give up uranium enrichment, diplomats said Wednesday.

The London meeting was to have been held Friday. But diplomats told The Associated Press that it had been moved to Tuesday or Wednesday to allow more time for phone discussions of what should be in a package of incentives to be offered to Tehran, said a diplomat, demanding anonymity because of the confidential nature of the information.
