Iran identifies man behind Natanz facility attack - report

Iranian authorities have identified the man believed to have carried out the attack on the Natanz nuclear facility, state media reported on Saturday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) said the suspect was Reza Karimi, who left the country before the explosion. "Necessary and legal steps for his arrest and return to the country are underway," it said. The IRIB also showed a picture of Interpol's "red notice" issued for Karimi's arrest. However, according to Sputnik, no such warrant can be found on Interpol's official website.

Iran previously blamed the attack on Israel and responded to it by announcing it would start enriching its uranium products by up to 60%.
