On Sunday, the Natanz nuclear site was hit by an attack, which was slammed by Tehran as an act of “nuclear terrorism”. While it was initially believed to be a cyber-attack, it was later reported that the facility had been targeted by explosives that damaged the plant’s centrifuges.
Tehran has learned the identity of a man who is believed to have carried out Sunday’s attack at the Natanz nuclear facility, an Iranian state broadcaster reported on Saturday.
The state TV identified the suspect as Reza Karimi, who they say had fled the country prior to the blast.
“Necessary and legal steps for his arrest and return to the country are underway”, the network added.
