UN atomic agency says Iran is increasing nuclear activity

VIENNA — Iran has prepared more than 1,000 advanced uranium enriching machines for start-up, the United Nation’s nuclear agency said Wednesday, a move that is likely to raise concerns among countries who accuse Tehran of wanting to harness enrichment for atomic arms.

At the same time, the report by the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran now has pushed back the time frame for the operation of a reactor that Iran’s critics fear could be used to make plutonium, which — like enriched uranium — can be used for the fissile core of nuclear weapons.
