Iran explosion at nuke facility traps 200

The Lid:
...

Today the Times of London quoted Israeli intelligence officials as saying that "a mega explosion had occurred and caused damage to the Iranian "Fordow" nuclear facility. The heavily fortified "Fordow" nuclear facility for uranium enrichment is located underground on a mountain near the Iranian city of Qum.

Sources reported that the explosion occurred last week. The Israeli government was trying to investigate into reports which told of damages sustained by the facility which led to trapping 200 workers inside the facility, according to the newspaper.

The British newspaper quoted an Israeli official as saying that "we're still in the early stages of trying to comprehend what happened and the extent of its significance," pointing out that it was not known whether the explosion was "an act of sabotage of incidental".

The Israeli official declined to comment on news regarding the presence of Israeli warplanes near the facility which contains 2700 centrifuges for uranium enrichment at the time of the explosion's occurrence.

Do not look at the Israeli refusal to comment on the presence of IAF warplanes as an admission they were indeed near the facility. As a practice Israel never confirms nor denies accusations of involvement in a military action.

Iran is still denying the explosion.  However the news seems to be followed by Reports taht Israel has shelved it planned attack for the time being.  It is possible that an explosion could have been caused by bugs planted in equipment used by Iran or in software programs via a cyber attack.  Or it could be Iranian scientist made a mistake that got out of control.
