Secret nuclear site in Iran, says opposition

London Daily Telegraph

An Iranian opposition group in exile has claimed that it had obtained information revealing the existence of a secret underground nuclear site located in tunnels beneath a mountain 72km north of Tehran.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said the site had recently been completed, but could not specify what type of nuclear activity would be carried out there.

"These revelations demonstrate once again that the mullahs' regime has no intention of stopping or even suspending the development of a nuclear weapon," said the NCRI,

In 2002, the NCRI correctly identified Iran's uranium-enrichment facility at Natanz and a heavy water facility at Arak, but analysts said its claims had a mixed record. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
