Iran closer to nuclear 'red line' says Netanyahu

Faced with "faster and faster" centrifuges spinning in Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Tehran's nuclear program was getting closer to crossing a crucial "red line."

Speaking via satellite link from Jerusalem to an influential pro-Israel lobby group, the remarks reiterated Netanyahu's apparent impatience with the policy of leading nations to use sanctions to suppress Iran's atomic ambitions.

Instead, the comments seemed to underscore Netanyahu's desire to see Tehran face a more robust military threat, in the wake of talks last week between the world's top powers and Iranian negotiators on the disputed nuclear program.
