LONDON (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog has asked Iran to explain evidence suggesting the Islamic Republic's scientists have experimented with an advanced nuclear warhead design, the Guardian reported in its Friday edition.
The newspaper, citing what it describes as "previously unpublished documentation" from an International Atomic Energy Agency compiled dossier, said Iranian scientists may have tested high-explosive components of a "two-point implosion" device.

Very misleading article headline. They tested a "warhead design" not a warhead.

Just how does one test a "warhead design" ?
Does this " two point " weapon design indicate some different type of R&D program ? If so what does this mean ?
Is this simply hype adding to the calls for an attack ? Or does this imply that Iran is much further along in there development then has been thought ?
