‘Sabotage attempt’ foiled at Iranian nuclear agency building – media

There was a failed attempt to sabotage one of the buildings owned by the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Iranian media reported on Wednesday, offering few details.

The sabotage operation “was neutralized this morning before it caused damage,” a report by the news agency of Iran’s state broadcaster, IRIB, said. Nobody was hurt, the agency said without offering further details on the reported incident.

The story was also reported by the English-language Iranian news channel Press TV, which credited the prevention to security measures taken since the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh last year. The story was first broken by the Twitter account of PTV news, based on information from “security sources.”

Tehran accused Israel of being behind several attacks against its nuclear industry, including the killing of Fakhrizadeh. The latest incident occurred in April, when a reported explosion caused damage to the power supply of the uranium enrichment facility in Natanz.
