Guardian – Conflicting reports have emerged from Iran over an explosion heard in the central city of Isfahan, close to the country’s sensitive nuclear facilities.

Iran’s semi-official Isna news agency quoted a judiciary official in Isfahan, saying that an explosion had been heard.

“We heard a sound similar to that of an explosion but we have received no reports about its causes and the consequences so far,” said Gholamreza Ansari, in quotes carried by Isna. He said the explosion did not appear to be of any significance.

From Obama’s self-created fiscal crisis to his self-created Iranian nuclear crisis. 2013 is getting off to a busy start.

An edict issued Wednesday by Iranian authorities orders Isfahan’s one-and-a-half million people to leave the city “because pollution has now reached emergency levels,” the BBC reported.

Iran nuking itself would be a better start to 2013, especially if Israel is involved

Just wonder if the No Nukes people would criticize a Muslim nation having a nuke accident.....liberals tend to give Koran Thumpers a pass on many things they would attack non Muslims for

"Bond... James Bond" ...cue the music: Dum da da dum dum dum, dum da da da dum dum dum, dum da da dum dum dum, dum da da da dum dum dum, DA DA, dum dum dum.

If true... "Doncha love it when a plan comes together?"

Lets see after this fiasco how much the Iranian people still love and support their blood-thirsty governments demon-posessed quest to aquire and use nuclear weapons on all their "infidel enemies".

As someone somewhere aptly said: "It's all 'fun and games' till someone gets hurt.

Iran's not known for protecting their people... so you might be right...
