The former chief-of-staff of Iran's armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards that could "attract atomic waves" to spy on the country's nuclear program.Firuzabadi said that he did not know the details of the cases, however that the West had often used tourists, scientists and environmentalists to spy on Iran.... We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities," he said.His comments came after news that a leading Iranian-Canadian environmentalist, Kavous Seyed Emami, had killed himself in prison after he was arrested along with other members of his wildlife NGO last month.
