Iran presses ahead
Iran presses ahead with uranium enrichment:
Iran has begun converting raw uranium into gas which can be used in the process of making nuclear weapons.
Iran's atomic energy chief said 37 tons of uranium mineral were converted into fuel used in nuclear centrifuges.
The move defies calls by the UN's nuclear watchdog for Iran to suspend all enrichment-related activities.
Iran's president said his country will continue developing nuclear technology, even if it leads to international inspections being cut off.
