Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation in state of emergency following explosion at Fordow

According to local news sources, the Iranian nuclear plant at Fordow has experienced a large, underground explosion which is currently trapping up to 240 staff underground.

According to local news sources, the Fordow nuclear plant in Iran experienced a large, underground explosion on Monday which is currently trapping up to 240 staff underground. The reason behind this explosion has yet to be determined and the story has not yet gained much traction in the main news outlets.

The Fordow enrichment plant, buried beneath about 260ft of rock and earth, was built in secret from 2006 onwards. But Western intelligence discovered its construction, allowing President Barack Obama to reveal the installation's existence in 2009. Fordow is Iran's most valuable plant because its location in a hollowed out mountainside could render it immune to air attack.
