Iran agrees to ship enriched uranium to Russia for refinement

The agreement in principle would ensure that Iran's uranium could not be used for nuclear weapons. Iran also pledged that it would allow inspection, within weeks, of a previously covert uranium enrichment facility near the holy city of Qom, and the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, announced he will head to Tehran to work out the details.
