Iran nuclear plan stokes tension

Iran's decision to build 10 new uranium enrichment facilities defies UN ruling.

    Iran has dramatically upped the stakes in the international standoff over its controversial nuclear programme.

    The government approved plans to build 10 more uranium enrichment plants.

    The move is a response to a demand made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN nuclear watchdog, for Iran to suspend all enrichment-related activities, and is in direct contravention of UN security council resolutions.
