Within hours of Iran proudly announcing the launch of its latest centrifuges, a power blackout damaged some of the precious machines at its site in Natanz. Iran has described this as an act of “terrorism” and pointed the finger at Israel. But there is still mystery over the cause. In Israel, some reports have suggested a cyber-attack might have been responsible but Iran has talked of “infiltrators” amid reports of an explosion linked to the power generator. One thing reports seem to agree on is that an “incident” affected the power distribution network at Natanz, leading to a blackout until emergency power systems kicked in.
