Iran will begin building a third facility for enriching uranium in 2011, said Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Islamic Republic's Atomic Energy Organization on Sunday, according to an AFP report.

Iran has been searching for new locations to build uranium enrichment facilities since the country's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, announced the construction of ten such plants late last year.

Salehi did not give details as to the location of the new facility, but he has said in the past that any new uranium enrichment sites would be constructed in areas that are not vulnerable to air strikes.
