Iran says expect atomic programme news tonight

Tehran, Apr 11: Iranians will hear 'good news' on their country's atomic programme tonight, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.

''After hearing all the good news tomorrow (Tuesday) night, Iranians should prostrate themselves before almighty God,'' he said in the northeastern city of Mashhad yesterday night.

A conservative newspaper close to key officials has speculated the news would be that Iran had enriched uranium to the 3.5 per cent level needed for fuel to run nuclear power stations.

A reporter for the Arabic-language Al Arabiya satellite channel said Iran had already successfully achieved this level of enrichment, but did not give a source.

Iranian officials could not immediately comment on this report.

Iran has been referred to the U.N. Security Council after failing to convince the international community that its scientists are enriching uranium for power stations, and not for weapons.
