TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran is building four more satellites, the telecommunications minister was quoted on Sunday as saying, after the Islamic Republic put its first domestically produced satellite into orbit last week.

Iran launched a research and telecom satellite, called Omid, on Tuesday, a step that worried Western powers who fear Tehran is seeking to build a nuclear bomb and missile delivery systems.

Iran insists its nuclear work is to generate electricity and said the satellite launch was for peaceful purposes.
