Iran: Mysterious Explosion at Controversial Nuclear Plant, Kills Top Scientist

UPDATE:   Iran Admits Testing Nuclear ‘Bridge Wires’ at Exploded Parchin

Two workers were killed in an explosion that took place at a military explosives factory southeast of Tehran, near the suspected nuclear reactor in Parchin, IRNA, the official Iranian news agency, reported Monday.

Parchin is a controversial military base where Israel and the International Atomic Energy Agency suspect the Islamic Republic is attempting to develop a nuclear explosive device. IAEA inspectors have not been permitted to enter the site since 2005.

As one of the two people killed in the explosion was an Iranian nuclear scientist, some are questioning if this was an Iranian accident or sabotage.

This brings reminders of the AP 2012 findings of an alleged Iranian nuclear blast chamber.
