Tehran: Iran on Sunday arrested four people after they were caught red-handed while trying to sabotage a nuclear site.

As per Iran`s Atomic Energy Organisation official, their plan was being monitored closely for sometime. However, it has not yet been established which nuclear site they were planning to damage.

Iran had earlier accused Israel and other Western allies of assassination of its nuclear scientists.

A few days back, Iran`s President Hassan Rouhani spoke to US President Barack Obama on phone to settle tensions over country’s nuclear programme.

Although Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today refused to oppose Iran-US talks, he further added that the main thing Israel is working to achieve is to prevent Iran`s enrichment capability.
