Iran explosion: large blast seen near military base outside Tehran

Iranian authorities are investigating a large explosion just east of the capital, Tehran, near a military base thought to have played a role in the country’s past nuclear testing activities.

Videos and pictures posted on social media that were picked up by local news outlets showed a bright light flaring out across the sky over the city early on Friday, followed by a large plume of smoke. Witnesses said the blast came from the direction of Parchin, a major military site.
