BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, Herhroz Kamalundi, has revealed new details about the nuclear facility explosion.

According to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Kamalundi said that the accident, which occurred on Thursday, happened in one of the halls that was under construction in the yard of the Natanz nuclear site.

Kamalundi confirmed that the hall was inactive in terms of radioactive materials, that is, free of nuclear materials, and therefore there was no contamination in it and no injuries were caused.

“Unfortunately, some rumors spread about the pollution issue, and this is absolutely not true,” Kamalundi said. “Teams of experts are present at the scene and are investigating the cause of this accident.”

He pointed out that the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Commission, Ali Akbar Salehi, had come to the site, and that friends and colleagues are currently studying the incident.

Kamalundi pointed out that there were no radioactive materials in it, and none of the workforce was present inside.

Kamalundi added that the accident did not lead to any interruption in the activities of the nuclear complex at Natanz.
