URGENT: Iran enriches uranium to 60% purity

Politics Economy

Iran has enriched uranium with 60 percent purity, the head of the country's nuclear agency said Friday, according to state-run media. It marks a serious violation of a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers under which Iran's enrichment had been capped to 3.67 percent and quickly brings the purity of its enriched uranium closer to weapons-grade levels.
