Nuclear Event in Iran on Thursday, 29 November, 2012 at 14:08 (02:08 PM) UTC.
[NOTICE!!! This information not confirmed!] Iranian nuclear
officials are being secretive about the nature of an incident in the
Iranian Isfahan nuclear plant that sent many staff members to nearby
hospital emergency rooms Wednesday. The head of Iran's Medical Emergency
Agency told reporters that staff members of an Isfahan Nuclear plant
"have observed some symptoms." He stressed that all medical emergency
units in Iran should be ready to "confront nuclear incidents." "Those
who have been around UCF Isfahan, have shown symptoms and are receiving
treatment," said Gholamreza Masoumi to Iranian state-run news agencies.
He did not mention a specific time for the incident nor did he
volunteer any details about the nature of it. "We have not yet had any
incident outside nuclear designated areas," he said. Masoumi said that
the agency has been training the medical emergency unit staff on
providing treatment for nuclear incidents. Masoumi told Mehr news agency
that recently the Iranian government has formed a "Nuclear Emergency"
task force to provide services that would be needed following nuclear
incidents. Furthermore, Nuclear Emergency centers in provinces where
nuclear sites are located will receive a boost. Masoumi stressed that
there has never been an incident of nuclear leakage at any Iranian
nuclear plant. Radio Free Europe reported that following the publication
of this incident, Mehr news removed the article from its website,
however, on June 28, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization,
Freidoon Abbasi, tried to play down the incident. "Any kind of incident
may occur in any plant," said Abbasi to Iranian Fars News. "However it
does not mean that such events lead to spread of radioactive material."
