Natanz Enrichment Site[edit]

Natanz Nuclear Facility

Considering that some of Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated in recent years, a number of students from diverse universities of the country sent letters to Iranian authorities, and asked them to change the names of Iran "nuclear facilities" and "enrichment sites" to Iranian assassinated nuclear scientists. As a result, their titles changed to 5 of those nuclear scientists. Among of them, was ahmadi Roshan; and Natanz enrichment site's name has been changed to "The site of Shahid Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan".[22]
