Ex-nuclear official: Iran has material for 1 to 2 atom bombs
Olli Heinonen, one of the IAEA's leading experts on Iran, says 'this constitutes a threat'.
Iran has stockpiled enough low-enriched uranium for one to two nuclear weapons, but it would not make sense for it to cross the bomb-making threshold with only this amount, a former top United Nations nuclear official was quoted as saying.
In unusual public remarks about Iran's disputed nuclear program, Olli Heinonen, the former chief of UN nuclear inspections worldwide, told the French Le Monde newspaper that Iran's uranium reserve still represented a "threat."
