Two workers were killed after an explosion at a military explosives factory near the Parchin military base southeast of Tehran. Iran's Defense Industries Organization (DIO) said the cause was a fire. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) suspects Iran has conducted research relevant to nuclear weapons at the Parchin site. IAEA inspectors have not been allowed to inspect the facility since 2005.
