Iran names suspect in Natanz attack, says he fled country

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran state television has named a suspect in the attack that damaged centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear site and says he fled the country.

The report Saturday named the suspect as 43-year-old Reza Karimi.

It showed a passport-style photograph of a man it identified as Karimi.

The attack Sunday, suspected to have been carried out by Israel, has inflamed a shadow war between the two nations.

Iran has begun enriching a small amount of uranium up to 60% purity — its highest level ever — in response amid talks in Vienna aimed at saving its tattered nuclear deal with world powers.
