.Iran moves some centrifuges to underground site

By ALI AKBAR DAREINI - Associated Press, 1 hr 30 mins ago. 22 Aug. 2011

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iran has moved some of its centrifuges to an underground uranium enrichment site that offers better protection from possible airstrikes, the country's vice president said Monday.

Engineers are "hard at work" preparing the facility in Fordo, which is carved into a mountain to protect it against possible attacks, to house the centrifuges, Fereidoun Abbasi was quoted as saying by state TV.

Abbasi, who is also Iran's nuclear chief, did not say how many centrifuges have been moved to Fordo nor whether the machines installed are the new, more efficient centrifuges Iran has promised or the old IR-1 types.

He did specify that the centrifuges will be taken to Fordo from Iran's main uranium enrichment facility in Natanz, central Iran.

Uranium enrichment lies at the heart of Iran's dispute with the West, a technology that can be used to produce nuclear fuel or materials for atomic bombs.

The United States and some of its allies accuse Iran of using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to develop atomic weapons. Iran has denied the charges, saying its nuclear program is peaceful and aimed at generating electricity, not nuclear weapons.

On Monday, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the new program raises suspicions.
