The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports that Iran has begun feeding uranium gas into a cascade of 174 advanced IR-2m centrifuges installed in an underground plant at the Natanz site. The action violates an international agreement on Iran's nuclear program reached in 2015, which limits Iran to using only IR-1 centrifuges in the underground plant.
