[NOTICE!!! This information not confirmed!]
Iranian nuclear officials are being secretive about the nature of an incident in the Iranian Isfahan nuclear plant that sent many staff members to nearby hospital emergency rooms Wednesday. The head of Iran's Medical Emergency Agency told reporters that staff members of an Isfahan Nuclear plant "have observed some symptoms." He stressed that all medical emergency units in Iran should be ready to "confront nuclear incidents." "Those who have been around UCF Isfahan, have shown symptoms and are receiving treatment," said Gholamreza Masoumi to Iranian state-run news agencies. He did not mention a specific time for the incident nor did he volunteer any details about the nature of it.

I'd read very recent reports of that AC/DC music virus hitting them over there again with blazing music in the middle of the night. I wonder if someone took the virus thing one step further?
A rare expression of concern about Iran’s nuclear sites and their impact on human health has been made by the head of the country’s accident and medical emergency center. “We believe all of our emergency services should be trained and ready to face nuclear accidents,” Gholamreza Massoumi was quoted as saying by Mehr, the country’s semiofficial news agency.
An unnamed “informed source,” however, was quoted by the Persian Service of the BBC as saying that inhalation of hexafluoride gas had caused respiratory problems for some of the personnel at the Isfahan facility.
Massoumi’s comments were removed from the Mehr news agency’s website a few hours after being published. Iranian news agencies often remove stories that are deemed too sensitive.
One week ago, around 2:40 p.m. local time Monday, November 28, the sound of a massive blast was heard throughout the city of Isfahan, in central Iran. The moderate conservative website Farhang Ashti reported that the sound of the apparent explosion was so strong that people, terrified, rushed to the streets.
The incident took place two-and-a-half weeks after an explosion at an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps facility 30 miles outside Tehran killed Major General Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, a leading figure in the development of the Islamic Republic's missile program, and at least 16 other Guard members...

First thing that came to my mind was the AC/DC virus.
Though, like Slayer69 stated it could very well be a complete fail on their part.
I'll be following the thread to see if any more information comes forth.

I just checked Google Earth and the facility appears to be a short distance Northwest of the population center. It's a city of 1.2 Million according to the Google Earth stats. Hopefully it's a contained issue, whatever happened there.
Personally, I really believe there need to be some classes of targets that are universally off limits for 'direct action' (I.E. Sanction them to death but no outright attack) Once they have the material that makes them worth attacking, I think that very fact makes them too dangerous to the civilian population to risk.
