Caspian Airlines Flight 7908 was a scheduled commercial flight from Tehran, Iran, to Yerevan, Armenia, that crashed near the village of Jannatabad, outside the city of Qazvin in north-western Iran, on 15 July 2009. All 153 passengers and 15 crew on board have been reported as dead. This accident marks the 57th loss of a Tupolev Tu-154, and the 5th loss of this type in Iran.
Alamut (Persian: دژ الموت) was once a mountain fortress in the arid hills by the Elburz mountains, south of the Caspian Sea, close to Gazor Khan, near Qazvin, about 100 km from present-day Tehran in Iran. Only ruins remain of this fortress today.
This is the underground hardened site that Iran today announced would be opened. Iran allowed IAEA inspectors to open seals and install cameras. It is here that Iran concentatrates uranium sufficiently to create nuclear weapons.
