Iran Said to Nearly Finish Underground Nuclear Enrichment Plant


iran-nuclear-enrichment-plant-qomIntelligence officials from several countries say Iran in recent weeks has virtually completed an underground nuclear enrichment plant. The installation of the last of nearly 3,000 centrifuges at Fordo, deep under a mountain near Qum, puts Iran closer to being able to build a nuclear weapon.

Iran’s progress was disclosed by officials familiar with the findings of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency who have been to the site recently. While the plant is not yet fully running – fewer than half of all its centrifuges are spinning out enriched uranium – Iran could have it doing so within months, officials say.
