Iran Blames United States, Israel for Assassination of Nuclear Scientist

American authorities denied the allegations and condemned the violence, but a spokesman for the Israeli military left room for speculation.

 

Iranian officials are accusing the U.S. and Israeli governments of assassinating another senior nuclear scientist in Tehran, using a car-bomb terrorist attack as part of the expanding covert war against Iran. American authorities denied the allegations and condemned the violence, but a spokesman for the Israeli military left room for speculation.

Scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a deputy director of Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, was murdered on Wednesday when a pair of men riding a motorcycle attached a magnetic explosive device to the side of his car. The driver and a bodyguard were also killed in the attack, according to news reports. And at least two bystanders were injured.
 
But Roshan, 32, is hardly the first Iranian expert in the field to be eliminated. In the last two years, several other scientists associated with Iran’s controversial nuclear program have also been murdered in similar circumstances. And the death toll is expected to continue rising.
 
Iranian officials blasted the attack, pointing the finger at the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Israeli Mossad. Iran also vowed to continue pursuing its nuclear program — which the Islamic regime insists is only for peaceful purposes — despite increasing Western pressure aimed at disrupting its alleged pursuit of atomic weapons.
