Pakistan: Disgraced Scientist Gave Centrifuges to Iran

Abdul Qadeer Khan, the disgraced scientist dubbed the father of Pakistan’s atomic bomb, provided Iran with centrifuges that can be used to purify uranium for nuclear weapons, the Pakistani government said on Thursday.
Pakistan has admitted in the past that Khan smuggled nuclear secrets to North Korea, Iran and Libya, but has not given specifics as to what he supplied.
“He has given centrifuges to Iran, but the government was in no way involved in this,” Pakistani Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told Reuters.
