Power has been restored in Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility and uranium enrichment activities there have been renewed, the head of the country’s atomic agency says.

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, is cited by the IRNA news agency as saying that “the cables damaged in the accident were speedily replaced and… the main power supply to the Natanz enrichment facility [is] now connected to the grid.

Salehi adds that “thanks to the timely measures taken, enrichment in Natanz never stopped, even when the main power cable was cut,” according to the report.
