Iran has begun curbing uranium enrichment, state TV says, under a nuclear deal which will also trigger an easing of international sanctions. Centrifuges used for enrichment were disconnected at the Nantaz plant, according to TV. Diplomats and officials close to the UN nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, confirmed that the process had begun.
