Another Iranian Nuclear scientist killed – A shadow war victim?

A young Iranian nuclear scientist was killed by  a magnetic bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist  in Tehran wednesday, according to Iranian media. This is the fourth scientist linked to Iran’s nuclear program killed in the past two years. Iranian officials accues the United States and Israel of being behind the attack, the latest in a string of incidents apparently aimed at disrupting Iran’s nuclear program that Israeli and western intelligence agencies are suspected of spearheading.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, 32, is the fourth scientist linked to Iran’s nuclear program killed in the past two years. Roshan was a chemical engineer, serving as professor at Tehran University as well as deputy director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, Iran’s semi-official news agency Fars News reported. Roshan’s driver was wounded in the blast and later died.

The reports said a magnetic explosive device was slipped under Roshan’s car by a motorcyclist, a tactic Fars News noted was similar to failed assassination of university professor Fereidoun Abbassi Davani in 2010. Davani is now the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization. Another nuclear scientist, Massoud ali Mohamadi, was killed almost exactly two years ago by a remote-controlled bomb attached to his car.

America and Israel’s henious act will not change the course of Iranian nation,” the Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said in a statement, referring to the bombing.

The terrorist action was carried out by the hirelings of the Zionist [Israeli] regime and those who claim to be fighting terrorism,” Iranian First Vice President Mohammed Reza Rahimi told a cabinet meeting on wednesday.
