LONDON — Deep-cover MI6 agents who found the previously secret underground uranium enrichment plant near the Iranian holy city of Qom have discovered a staggering five more similar plants.
They, like the Qom facility, are buried deep inside the mountains of north Iran and are guarded by divisions of Revolutionary Guards.
The details have been sent this weekend to some officials attending the G20 summit in Pittsburgh when the Qom facility was revealed to the world.
The MI6 agents have established that, like Qom, the new plants are staffed by nuclear scientists from Iran’s main weaponization program. It is known by the acronym Metfaz, and is headquartered at 180 Western Avenue in the Pars district of eastern Tehran.

Details of the MI6 discovery were hand-couriered to Meir Dagan, the head of Mossad over the weekend by Sir John Scarlett. They contained a detailed picture of what was being built at the five new plants.
A senior intelligence source said the data came from “an Iranian nuclear scientist’s smuggled laptop, defectors and satellite imagery.”
The highly unusual indication of the source material is seen as a deliberate attempt by Western intelligence to rattle the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that a further vital part of his nuclear plan has been discovered.
