Israel’s blowing up our scientists, says Tehran governor

An Iranian official said Israel was behind a car-bomb assassination of an Iranian scientist in Tehran on Wednesday, pointing to similarities with previous killings of other nuclear scientists.

“The responsibility of this explosion falls on the Zionist regime,” the governor of Tehran province, Safar Ali Bratloo, told Iran’s Arabic-language Al-Alam broadcaster.

“The method of this terrorist action is similar to previous actions that targeted Iran’s nuclear scientists,” he said.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan (32) was killed when two unidentified men on a motorbike attached a magnetic bomb to his car outside a university in east Tehran Wednesday, media reported. Two passengers in the car were wounded.

Ahmadi Roshan worked at Iran’s uranium enrichment facility in Natanz, the university from which he graduated a decade ago said on its website.

He was the fourth Iranian scientist to be killed in a car bomb blast in Tehran since early 2010. At least two of the others were also nuclear scientists.
