Security forces in Natanz have arrested two suspected "spy pigeons" near Iran’s controversial uranium enrichment facility, reported the reformist Etemad Melli newspaper. One of the pigeons was caught near a rose water production plant in the city of Kashan in Isfahan province. Natanz, the home to Iran’s heavily bunkered underground uranium enrichment plant, is not far from Kashan.
Tehran vehemently denies the allegations. This is the latest in a series of complaints and responses. Last year, Iran issued a formal protest over the use of espionage by the United States to produce a key intelligence report on the country’s controversial nuclear program.
