"Iran said Sunday that its scientists had produced the country’s first nuclear fuel rod and its navy had test-fired a new medium-range surface-to-air missile, announcements that were likely to heighten concerns about the country’s disputed uranium-enrichment program. The Islamic Republic News Agency, or IRNA, reported that the nuclear fuel rod had 'passed all physical and dimensional tests' and had been inserted into the core of Tehran’s research reactor."
