The Iranian government approved a plan Sunday to build 10 new uranium enrichment facilities, a dramatic expansion in defiance of U.N. demands it halt the program.
The decision comes only two days after the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency censured Iran, demanding it immediately stop building a newly revealed enrichment facility near the holy city of Qom and freeze all uranium enrichment activities. [...]
[T]he announcement is likely to stoke already high tensions between Iran and the West over its controversial nuclear activities.
Nothing like escalating tensions to start our Sunday off right, huh?
