Iran said it has arrested 4 people suspected of plotting to sabotage one of its nuclear facilities, Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization chief Ali Akbar Saleh told the Iranian Student’s News Agency (IRNA).
“Some time ago, we uncovered sabotage activities by several people at a nuclear plant,” Saleh said in comments carried by the Mehr news agency.
“We let them continue their activities so that we could gather more intelligence. We arrested them at the appropriate moment and their interrogation is ongoing.”
The IRNA is a favorite mouthpiece of the regime, and the claim, which it reported from another news agency, may be true or may be propaganda.
