Iran hiding equipment allowing it to build nuclear bomb — report

Iran is hiding from international officials equipment that could enable it to build a nuclear bomb, The Telegraph reports, citing unnamed Western intelligence officials.

The report says the officials fear the Islamic Republic is concealing essential parts and pumps for centrifuges that are used to enrich uranium to weapons-grade 90%.

The machinery is allegedly hidden at secret sites run by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the report says.

Iran denies its nuclear program is military, but has repeatedly threatened to destroy Israel and has said it can enrich uranium to 90% quickly if it wants.
