Iran is developing a second path to achieving a nuclear weapon by operating a heavy water plant in Arak that could produce plutonium, satellite images published by The Telegraph on Wednesday show.

The satellite images that were taken earlier this month show Tehran has activated the plant, that produces heavy water needed to operate a nuclear reactor that can produce plutonium, from which a nuclear bomb could be made.

According to the Telegraph, the heavily-guarded facility has not been visited by any international inspectors since August 2011 and the Islamic Republic has repeatedly refused requests for information about the site.
