3. Iran Rejects Report of Blast at Nuclear Site as Propaganda

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said a report of a blast at its Fordo nuclear site was “absolutely incorrect,” the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

“The false report of an explosion in the Fordo site is western propaganda ahead of the nuclear negotiations in order to impact the talks,” Seyyed Shamseddin Barbardoudi, the deputy head of Iran’s atomic agency, was quoted as saying by IRNA late yesterday. “No explosion has occurred at Fordo.”

Masoud Jazayeri, a spokesman for the joint chiefs of staff of Iran’s armed forces, also denied the explosion claim, according to a report today by the state-run Iranians Students News Agency.

In a Jan. 24 report, the WorldNetDaily said an explosion occurred last week at Fordo, which is built inside a mountain outside the Iranian capital, destroying part of the installation and trapping some 240 employees underground. It cited a former Iranian intelligence ministry official, Hamidreza Zakeri.

And that may explain why major US news sources haven't been reporting this - any story that starts at World Nut Daily has to be regarded with extreme scepticism.
