Nuclear inspectors visit suspect uranium sites

The visits take place Monday and Tuesday to a uranium mine and “uranium thickening facility” in the central Iranian towns of Ardakan and Yazid, Behrous Kamalvandi, Iran’s nuclear department spokesman reported. After the visit, Tehran can say that the measures agreed between Iran and the agency are fulfilled, he said.
