Nigeria will report Iran to the UN Security Council if it finds any evidence that an illegal arms shipment it seized two weeks ago broke UN sanctions, the Foreign Minister, Odein Ajumogobia, said.

Mr Ajumogobia met his Iranian counterpart Manouchehr Mottaki late on Thursday to discuss the shipment, intercepted by Nigeria's secret service in Lagos and found to contain rockets and other explosives.

Mystery surrounds the weapons' destination, but investigations have focused on two Iranians said to be senior members of the Revolutionary Guard.
