Iran appears to be nearly finished installing centrifuges at one of its underground plants, drawing it still closer to making weapons-grade uranium.

Reuters quoted Western diplomats who said they have heard indications that Iran finished putting in place the remaining uranium centrifuges but had not starting running them yet.

According to the unnamed diplomats, while there may be more centrifuges located deep inside a mountain at its Fordow plant, the preparations needed to operate them have not been completed.

The United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency in its last report, in August, said that Iran had doubled the number of centrifuges at Fordow to 2,140.
