Israeli intel chief warns of Iran's nukes

JERUSALEM, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Iran has enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb and will soon be able to build two, Israel's head of military intelligence said.

Speaking before the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, outgoing head of Military Intelligence Maj. Gen. Amos Yadlin said Iran has enough uranium enriched to 20 percent to make one nuclear bomb and will soon have enough for two devices, Haaretz reported Wednesday.

However, Yadlin noted Iran's progress toward a bomb is slower than expected because it is encountering problems, The Jerusalem Post said.
