TEHRAN, Oct 25 (AFP) Oct 25, 2006
Iran has installed its second cascade to enrich uranium at a nuclear facility and will start feeding gas into the equipment this week, the ISNA news agency quoted an official source as saying Wednesday.

"The second cascade was installed two weeks ago and this week we are going to inject it with (uranium hexafluoride UF6) gas," the source, which was not identified, told the student agency.

"Soon after the injection of the gas we will have the product of the second cascade," the official added, referring to enriched uranium.
