Funny, I didn't hear anything
Earlier reports claimed that there was an explosion at Iran's Parchin nuclear weapons development facility
The semi-official Isna news agency claimed the explosion took place after a fire erupted in an "explosive materials production unit".
"Unfortunately, due to the incident, two workers of this production
unit lost their lives," the site reported. Other Iranian outlets cited
witnesses who said a "loud explosion" could be heard several kilometers
The opposition Sahamnews outlet claimed the blast was so
powerful it shattered windows some 15 kilometers away from the site,
raising the possibility that a far more destructive explosion had taken
place than official outlets are letting on.
But Iran has since denied that any explosion took place
In the first official comment on the incident, official Iranian sources
said that there had been an “incident,” but not an explosion, at the
Parchin plant. Two people are classified as “missing.” The sources added
that there was no nuclear work being done at Parchin.
Liar, liar, pants on fire!
