A leading Iranian opposition group reports that the Islamic republic is still working on atomic weapons at installations that were relocated to evade detection.
The Mujahedin-e Khalk, or MEK, cited anonymous sources inside the regime. According to the Times of Israel, MEK reports that Iran’s Organization of Defensive Information and Research, or SPND, moved its most sensitive weapons research to a new Tehran location “in recent months.”
Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) brigadier general, heads the SPND.

A missing Iranian nuclear scientist, who Tehran claims was abducted by the U.S., has taken refuge at the Pakistani embassy in Washington and is asking to return to his homeland, Iran said Tuesday.
Iran has repeatedly claimed that the U.S. abducted Amiri — charges the Americans deny. U.S. media reported in March that the 32-year-old scientist had defected to the U.S. and was assisting the CIA in efforts to undermine Iran’s disputed nuclear program.
Adding to the confusion, Amiri himself appeared in a series of videos giving conflicting messages, including one where he claimed he was abducted by American and Saudi agents and taken to the U.S. and another saying he was freely studying in the United States.
