An Iranian negotiator says the country will enrich uranium to 60% purity tomorrow. 

That's the highest level of uranium enrichment in the country's history and up from the current level of 20%.

The decision comes after an attack on one of Iran's nuclear facilities. 

That attack cast a shadow over indirect talks between the U.S. and Iran over a nuclear deal.
