Iran blames Israel and U.S. for nuclear scientist’s murder

Tuesday , January 12th, 2010

Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Tuesday it had evidence that a bomb that killed a Tehran University professor was planted by “Zionist and American agents”.

“The assassination of Mr Mssoud Ali-Mohammadi, a nuclear scientist and a committed and revolutionary Tehran University professor, was detonated by a remote control,” state broadcaster IRIB said on its website.

“As a result of the bomb planted by Zionist and American agents two cars and a motorcycle were severely damaged and the windows in the surrounding residential units were shattered,” it said. Iran usually refers to Israel as the “Zionist regime.”

The state broadcaster earlier said “anti-revolutionary elements” were behind Mohammadi’s death, describing it as a terrorist act.

Mohammadi “was martyred this morning in a terrorist act by anti-revolutionary and arrogant powers’ elements,” IRIB said on its website. Iran usually refers to its Western foes as “the global arrogance.”
