Israel has openly displayed pictures of its Negrev nuclear plant for the first time. The facility is believed to house around 200 nuclear warheads,
though Israel has never confirmed their existence. The pictures were published on the website of the Israeli
Atomic Energy Commission.
The pictures reveal little about the site, which has been at the centre of controversy about Israel's nuclear programme.
They are taken at a distance from the building, which is obscured in the photographs by trees and flowers.
Nor does the website provide any new insight into the programme, saying merely that research at the plant aims to expand knowledge of nuclear science
and provide an infrastructure for the use of atomic energy.
Israel has come under pressure to open its nuclear facilities to international inspection.

close as they're prepared to let anyone get...
