ranian officials have instructed residents of Isfahan to leave the city, renewing concerns that a nearby nuclear site could be leaking radioactive material.
An edict issued Wednesday by Iranian authorities orders Isfahan’s one-and-a-half million people to leave the city “because pollution has now reached emergency levels,” the BBC reported.

TY for posting this
Just because of some of the moronic posts here at times... I want to add that in Iran.. including Tehran and Isfahan.. there are all sorts. Not all are gun toting terrorists. There are Christians, atheists, muslims, etc etc.... theyre JUST FOLKS.. like you and I.. working and taking care of their families and just wanting to live a decent life. The prospect of a nuke disaster in this area is horrible to sane people.
Esfahan Nuclear Technology Centre
Updated Jan 13, 2012
Suspected to be the primary location of Iran's nuclear weapons programme, the Nuclear Technology Centre employs thousands of scientists. The facility operates four small reactors, all supplied by China. In addition to the uranium conversion plant, the city is also reportedly the site of Iran's largest missile assembly and production plant, built with North Korean assistance.
All activities of Iran's Isfahan uranium conversion facility (UCF) are under control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The IAEA is the world's center of cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up in 1957 as the world's "Atoms for Peace" organization within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies.

The worlds nuclear accidents are all adding to earths doom, already food and drinking water is far too high in rads, and this can only add not decrease it, we should not have allowed Iran to get this far, but having a Muslim President in USA the last few year was allowing them to do what they want.
