Caption

Manufacturing facility, Iraq. Satellite image of the Al Furat manufacturing facility in Iraq. The name Al Furat does not relate to the location, rather it is a code-name. The facility is 27-30 kilometres southwest of Baghdad. Despite a lack of evidence, the United States believe the site is intended for the design, assembly and testing of gas centrifuges for uranium enrichment. It is estimated that around 15 kilograms of weapon-grade uranium could be produced annually using this technology. Image taken on 27 February 2002 by Space Imaging's Ikonos satellite.
