EXCLUSIVE-Iran expands nuclear centrifuge programme-diplomats

VIENNA, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Iran has launched a second batch of centrifuges
at its pilot nuclear fuel plant despite possible U.N. Security Council
sanctions, diplomats said.

Tehran fired up the new cascade of 164 interconnected centrifuges, which can
enrich uranium for either power plant or nuclear bomb fuel, earlier this month
to go with an initial network of 164, they said.

But Iran appeared to be only testing the second cascade, without feeding "UF6"
uranium gas into it, as it has generally done with the first cascade, which
first yielded a tiny amount of home-grown enriched uranium in April.

A senior diplomat familiar with U.N. nuclear inspections in Iran said Tehran
remained a long way from "industrial scale" capacity that would signal its
emergence as a nuclear power, as North Korea showed on Oct. 9 by detonating
an atomic device.
