Iranian Nuclear facility hit by ‘sabotage’

A nuclear facility in Iran was hit by “sabotage” a day after it unveiled new uranium enrichment equipment.

The country’s top nuclear official, Ali Akbar Salehi, did not say who was to blame for the “terrorist act”, which caused a power failure at the Natanz complex south of Tehran yesterday.

Israeli public media, however, cited intelligence sources who said it was the result of an Israeli cyber-attack. Israel has not commented on the incident directly.

But in recent days it has ramped up its warnings about Iran’s nuclear programme.
