UN nuclear watchdog backs Iran's denial of Fordow explosion

Jan. 29, 2013 9:23 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 29, 2013 9:23 P.M.)
VIENNA (Reuters) -- The UN atomic watchdog backed up on Tuesday Iran's denial of media reports of an explosion at one of the Islamic state's most sensitive nuclear plants.

The reports had said there had been an explosion early last week at the underground Fordow uranium enrichment facility near the holy Iranian city of Qom. Iran denied the reports on Monday.

"We understand that Iran has denied that there has been an incident at Fordow. This is consistent with our observations," Gill Tudor, spokeswoman for the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in an emailed statement. IAEA inspectors regularly visit Iranian nuclear sites, including the one at Fordow.
