Report: Saudi Arabia May Be Hiding A Secret Nuclear Program
05 April 2006

IHC NEWS (GERMANY) - A report in the German magazine Cicero stated that Western security sources confirm Saudi Arabia has a covert nuclear weapons program that is being aided by Pakistani scientists.According to the magazine, the Saudis helped finance the Pakistani program, which became public in 1998, and worked closely with them since the mid 1990s.Now it appears Pakistan is aiding its Middle Eastern ally with the dangerous know-how.The article quoted German security expert Udo Ulfkotte as describing how scientists from Pakistan posing as pilgrims during the Haj pilgrimages to Mecca in 2003 through 2005 secretly visited the clandestine program at Al-Sulaiyil, an underground city south of Riyadh.The Pakistanis stayed for weeks at Al-Sulaiyil, a place said to house dozens of missile silos. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has officially denied the claims calling it “totally unfounded.” Source: (Reliability: 5)
