ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's official news agency says the country has begun designing its second light-water nuclear power plant, a 360-megawatt facility in the southwest.

Mohammad Saeedi, deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, says experts have chosen the site where the light-water nuclear reactor will be built using local technology.

Iran is still finishing building its first nuclear power plant, a 1,000-megawatt reactor in the southern city of Bushehr being constructed with Russian help. It is to begin operations early next year.

Iran has said for years that it was planning to build a 360-megawatt nuclear power plant in Darkhovin, in the southwestern Khuzestan province.
