Iran is making "slow but steady" progress in its efforts to enrich uranium, but probably still will not have enough fuel for a single nuclear warhead until 2009 at the earliest, a former UN inspector said Tuesday. David Albright, who now heads the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, said Iran must still overcome some tricky obstacles if it intends to enrich uranium to weapons grade - and it may take tougher sanctions to stop it. "Iran's been making slow but steady progress," he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "We think Iran has been moving faster than (the US government) has anticipated."
