Iran opens up over atomic work, expands it-IAEA

VIENNA, Nov 15 (Reuters) Iran has made important strides toward transparency about its nuclear activity but has yet to resolve key outstanding questions, a UN report said yesterday.

Iran has further expanded uranium enrichment despite UN demands to stop, raising the number of centrifuge machines to 3,000, the watchdog report said. This number is enough to start industrial production of nuclear fuel.

The findings may open Iran to harsher sanctions due to suspicions that it is secretly working towards making atom bombs. Tehran says it wants only nuclear-generated electricity.
