Iran is said to have completed its centrifuge installation at its underground Fordow plant doubling its uranium enrichment capability.

A leaked report by the International Atomic Energy Agency claims the Islamic state has put in place nearly all the 2,800 centrifuges the Fordow facility was built for and is poised to double the number of them operating from 700 to 1400.

The news is set to increase Western alarm over Iran’s nuclear intentions.

The report also points to possible nuclear experiments at the Parchin military site and the unexplained removal of nuclear fuel from the Bushehr reactor.

The UN nuclear watchdog’s findings underline the challenge facing world powers seeking to limit Iran’s atomic activity which they fear is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. A charge Tehran denies.
