Iranian Defector: There was a Big Explosion at Fordow

An Iranian defector confirmed, Tuesday, that there was an explosion, last week, at the Fordow nuclear facility, where Iran is believed to be developing atomic weapons.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces RadioHamid Reza Zakeri said, "It was a big blast and because the facility is built under a stone mountain, it is very difficult to get to the workers who are trapped there. All the elevators and emergency staircases collapsed."
