A United Nations official warned that Iran could enrich enough uranium to build a nuclear bomb in three to eight years.Mohamed El Baradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, offered his assessment Thursday after a report of the IAEA warned that Iran had reduced its cooperation with U.N. inspectors and accelerated its enrichment efforts, the Los Angeles Times reported. According to the report, Iran has installed more than 1,600 centrifuges used to enrich uranium, and is building more than 500 others, at its main nuclear facility at Natanz. El Baradei came under fire earlier in the week for announcing that it was probably too late to stop Iran’s nuclear program. The United States plans to register a formal complaint against El Baradei for his remarks.
