MANAMA, Bahrain — Iran claimed that Iraqi warplanes raided an unfinished nuclear power plant today for the second time this week, and Iraq said it bombed three tankers in Iranian waters and shot down two enemy planes.
Iraq did not confirm the latest reported attack on the nuclear plant near Iran's coastal city of Bushehr. The other attack on the plant came Tuesday. Iran has said it moved "fissionable material" into the facility and claimed that a second attack might result in a nuclear disaster equal to the 1986 Chernobyl accident in the Soviet Union. Nuclear experts discounted the claims.
