Two days after DEBKAfile disclosed exclusively that Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr was shut down in mid-October for fear of an explosion, the Wall Street Journal Monday quoted US officials as reporting that surveillance had been stepped up in alarm over activities at Bushehr, especially the removal of fuel rods from the plant in October, just two months after it became fully operational.
“Nuclear experts said they are more concerned about safety at the reactor, for now, than about the prospect that Tehran will use the facility to develop atomic weapons.”  Read the DEBKAfile Dec. 1 report.
