Iran seen having problems with nuclear program

Iran appears to be encountering technical difficulties with its uranium enrichment.

But this does not diminish the fact that it has nuclear ambitions and is acting on them, U.S. officials and experts said on Thursday. "Have they encountered technical difficulties? Absolutely, because this is a very difficult thing to do," Undersecretary of State Robert Joseph, the top U.S. non-proliferation official, told Reuters.
