IAEA: Iran boosts nuclear enrichment efficiency

Iran has started using extra machines installed this year to enrich nuclear material to higher levels more efficiently, in violation of United Nations sanctions, the UN nuclear agency said Monday.


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iran was using a second set, or "cascade", of centrifuge machines at its Natanz pilot plant to enrich uranium to 20% purity, a process that has heightened Western concerns that it is trying to develop nuclear weapons. (Reuters)
