      Iran's Nuclear Chief: Arak Reactor Could be Modified


      Iran's nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, said on Thursday that the unfinished Arak reactor could be modified to produce less plutonium in a bid to reassure the West, AFP reports.

      The Arak site is of concern to Western nations because Tehran could theoretically extract weapons-grade plutonium from its spent fuel if it also builds a reprocessing facility, potentially giving it a second route to an atomic bomb.
