Iran's foreign ministry spokesman is claiming that a computer worm found on the laptops of several employees at the country's nuclear power plant is part of a covert Western plot to derail the Iranian atomic program.

Ramin Mehmanparast says it won't make Iran "give up or stop" its nuclear activities. Mehmanparast's remarks on Tuesday were the strongest yet on Teheran's suspicions over the worm.

Iran said the Stuxnet worm infected personal computers of Bushehr employees but not the plant's main systems.
