The British newspaper the Daily Telegraph reported Sunday morning that Iran has built a secret underground nuclear command and control center in Teheran, as preparation for what it sees as future conflicts with the west. According to the report, the secret facility is part of the Iranian plan to move as many as possible of that state's nuclear facilities underground, in an attempt to evade their destruction. The site, the London daily reported, could also be used as a bunker for Iran's leaders, should a military conflict erupt.
