Report: Iran to install nuclear fuel rods in reactor

Iran will install domestically-produced nuclear fuel rods into a research reactor Wednesday with the president in attendance, the official news agency reported.

The indigenous nuclear fuel rods are a giant step in the nation's nuclear program, according to ISNA, the news agency.

Tehran announced last month that it had succeeded in building and testing a domestically-produced nuclear fuel rod, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported at the time.

The uranium fuel rod was tested successfully and installed in the core of a research reactor in Tehran, the news agency said, citing Iran's atomic energy agency website.
