WASHINGTON, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- An analysis of satellite images has apparently located an area in Syria where a possible nuclear facility was being built until it was hit by Israeli warplanes.
Independent analysts who reviewed the photos told The Washington Post the facility that was bombed last month appeared similar to North Koran sites capable of producing a nuclear weapon.
"I'm pretty convinced that Syria was trying to build a nuclear reactor," David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security told the newspaper Wednesday.
Syria has denied any development of nuclear weapons and is also a party to the international Non-Proliferation Treaty.
The International Atomic Energy Agency was still analyzing its satellite imagery and hasn't announced any conclusions, the Post said.
