Iran Admits Fire in Natanz Is a Setback to Centrifuge Program

Last week, an incident of “sabotage” was reported on the site of Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility. The fire was claimed to have damaged a shed, and Iran said at the time that damage was minimal, there were no casualties, and no radiation leaks.

Over the weekend, experts began warning that damage was much worse than previously admitted. Fire appears to have wiped out an above-ground lab, leveling it, and Iranian officials concede it has set back their centrifuge program substantially.

Satellite images showed broader damage on the surface, though it is not believed the centrifuges, which are installed underground, had anything happen to them. Either way, the fire and sabotage are more substantial than was initially understood.
