An explosion is believed to have damaged Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility,
which is being used to enrich uranium, Israeli intelligence officials have
told The Times. Sources in Tel Aviv said yesterday that they thought the
explosion happened last week. The Israeli Government is investigating
reports that it led to extensive structural damage and 200 workers had been
trapped inside.

Israel believes the Iranians have not evacuated the surrounding area. It is
unclear whether that is because no harmful substances have been released, or
because Tehran is trying to avoid sparking panic among residents.

The Fordow plant is buried deep underground.
