Iran says Arak reactor came under attack

: Tuesday, March 18 - 2014 @ 03:23

Asghar Zarean, deputy chief for nuclear protection and security at the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran has said pumps at the country’s planned Arak reactor were tampered with in a failed attempt to sabotage the Islamic Republic’s nuclear programme, Reuters has reported. The incident was one of several such attacks foiled over the past few months, Zarean said, without naming the targets of the other alleged attacks or who might have been behind them. “Intelligence inspections of the nuclear facilities indicated that some pumps… of Arak’s IR-40 project had been mechanically manipulated in an effort to disrupt the routine work of the power plant,” he said.
