Iran begins inserting fuel into nuclear plant core

• Reuters

Iran began loading fuel into the core of its first nuclear power plant on Tuesday, its atomic energy chief said, taking the last major step to realizing its stated goal of becoming a peaceful user of nuclear energy.

Officials said it showed Iran's nuclear plans were on track despite sanctions aimed at forcing it to curb uranium enrichment which many countries fear is aimed at developing atomic weapons.
