The Head of the Nuclear Energy Organization said "A while ago we took notice of some sabotage attempts at nuclear facilities. We identified them and let them continue their job so that at the right moment and having gained access to the details we would arrest them.”
Aliakbar Salehi added "Four of them were arrested on the spot and they are under investigation,” Mehr News Agency reports.
The Head of the Nuclear Energy Organization refused to provide more information on the issue on the grounds that the interrogations are yet underway.
He provided comments on Iran’s security measures for the nuclear cyberspace and said "Since the Stuxnet virus began its activity the Nuclear Energy Organization started action. Now security systems are upgraded. Besides, we have taken away the systems that are connected to the internet.”
