A reported 'accident' at the Parchin military research center in Iran was actually a drone attack, the New York Times reported three Iranians with knowledge of the attack and one US official as saying on Friday. An Iranian engineer was killed and another employee was injured on Wednesday evening in the incident, at the research center that officially belongs to Iran’s Defense Ministry. The attack was carried out by quadcopter suicide drones, the Iranian sources were quoted as saying. The sources were not authorized to speak publicly.

Situated 60 km. (37 miles) southeast of Tehran, Parchin is a sensitive military site housing several industrial and research units. It is where Western intelligence services believe Iran carried out tests related to nuclear bomb detonations more than a decade ago. Ehsan Ghadbeigi, a mechanical engineer, was identified as the person killed in the incident. His colleague who was injured was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.
