    Iran has dramatically upped the stakes in the international standoff over its controversial nuclear programme.

    The government approved plans to build 10 more uranium enrichment plants.

    The move is a response to a demand made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN nuclear watchdog, for Iran to suspend all enrichment-related activities, and is in direct contravention of UN security council resolutions.
