Tehran decides on nuclear sites
Tuesday 17 August 2010
Tehran has decided where to build 10 uranium-enrichment sites inside protected mountain strongholds and will start construction of the first in March, the Iranian government said.
The move is in defiance of international efforts to curb Iran's nuclear programme – the UN Security Council has already passed four sets of sanctions against Iran for its nuclear activities.
Iran's enrichment of uranium creates fuel for nuclear power plants but could also produce the material for weapons, causing extreme unease in the West and in Israel.
