UN post called espionage

Iran claimed yesterday that a newly built UN station to detect nuclear explosions was built near its border to give the West a post to spy on the country. The construction of the seismic monitoring station was completed last week in neighboring Turkmenistan, a few miles from the Iranian border. It's one of roughly 275 such stations that are operational worldwide.
