Iran has reported an accident at its main nuclear facility at Natanz. Tehran's Atomic Agency says it affected the site's electrical distribution grid. Power was out across the facility's above-ground workshops and underground enrichment halls. On Saturday, President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran had launched new advanced enrichment centrifuges at the site. This is after several centrifuges were damaged in a fire last year - an incident Tehran called an 'act of sabotage'. And Iran is high on the agenda as the U-S Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin visits Israel. Tensions in the region have been escalating in recent weeks.
