Report: Dimona Employee Tried to Blow Up Reactor


A Kuwaiti newspaper reported Friday that the Shabak (General Security Service) has arrested a senior employee at the Dimona nuclear power plant who planned to blow up one of the reactors there.

According to Al-Jareeda, British intelligence sources said that the man arrested is named Moshe, and lives in Beersheva. He is also suspected of giving information to foreign agents, the paper said. When he was arrested a while ago, his family was told he was sent to a secret course abroad.

There is no confirmation of the story from any other source.
