Iran Building Secret Nuclear Site, Opposition Group Says

Iran is building an underground nuclear facility in the mountains northeast of Tehran that it hasn’t declared to international inspectors, an Iranian opposition group said.

The complex of tunnels near the town of Damavand, 60 kilometers (35 miles) from Tehran, has been under construction since 2006, the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran, an opposition group with a mixed record of accuracy, said in a statement. Its exact purpose is unknown, the group said.
