BERLIN - Iran may have tested a nuclear bomb in North Korea in 2010, Hans Rühle, who directed the planning department of the German Defense Ministry from 1982 to 1988, wrote on German daily Die Welt's website on Sunday.
According to his article, many intelligence agencies believe that of the two nuclear tests carried out in North Korea in 2010 at least one detonation was an Iranian atomic weapons device. Some intelligence agencies believe that North Korea used its nuclear weapons expertise to test a weapon of mass destruction on behalf of the Iranians .
Rühle, who is widely respected among defense and security officials, writes that "Iran's military was capable of testing a nuclear warhead in North Korea in 2010. It is therefore not surprising if some intelligence agencies are now of the view that North Korea, in fact, in 2010 conducted at least one nuclear test for Iran."
