VIENNA, March 3 (UPI) -- Nuclear experts reportedly have seen a video hinting Iran is working on a nuclear weapon despite protestations to the contrary from Iranian officials.

Representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency met in Vienna last week to pore over the video and other documents dealing with Iran's nuclear program, The New York Times reported Monday. Notes taken by diplomats revealed the chief United Nations nuclear inspector said the materials showed work "not consistent with any application other than the development of a nuclear weapon," the Times reported.

The video depicted engineers designing a nuclear warhead that would fit on Iran's most sophisticated missile delivery system, the Times said.

Iranian Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh labeled the materials fabrications and warned the agency was headed down "a very dangerous road," the diplomats told the Times.

Still, the newspaper reported, the Iranian delegation at the meeting quickly pulled out cell phones to take photos of the materials being shown.
