Iran shows no signs of freezing uranium enrichment, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Thursday, in a report that opens the way for UN Security Council sanctions against Tehran. The restricted report did not make a judgment on whether Iran was enriching on Thursday, the last day of a Security Council deadline for it to cease the activity, saying only that it started work on a new batch on Aug. 24. A senior official close to the agency said centrifuges were processing uranium gas for enrichment as late as Tuesday, the last day that IAEA inspectors reported back to headquarters on Tehran's nuclear program.
