Iran exile group claims evidence of hidden nuclear site

An exiled Iranian opposition group Thursday claimed to have evidence of a hidden nuclear site located in tunnels beneath a mountain near the town of Damavand, 70 kilometres northeast of Tehran. The Paris-based militant group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), alleges the site has existed since 2006 with the first series of subterranean tunnels and four external depots recently completed.

The group also claims the recently elected President Hassan Rohani, a former nuclear negotiator, had a ‘key role’ in the programme. Founded in the 1960s to oppose the rule of the Shah, the MEK was considered a terrorist organisation by the United States until last year, and has provided information about the Iranian nuclear programme on several occasions.  ‘MEK has discovered credible evidence of a secret new nuclear site, ‘ it said.
