The Iranian state news agency IRNA announced Saturday that the computer worm Stuxnet, which wreaked havoc on the industrial equipment at Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, was created by the United States and Israel.

Gholam Reza Jalili, the commander of the Iranian civil defense organization, accused "the Zionist regime and the American state of Texas" of creating and releasing the worm.

Stuxnet caused myriad technical problems at the Iranian nuclear site which led to months of setbacks and delays.
