Some Pointing to Israel in Assassination of Iranian Nuclear Expert

10:30AM IL: According to foreign media reports, an Iranian nuclear expert, Professor Masud Mohammadi, was assassinated in an explosion near his Tehran home earlier Tuesday morning.

The state-run Iranian news agency reports an explosive device was attached to the victims motorcycle and it detonated shortly after he left home, apparently on his way to work. The victim was a nuclear physicist associated with Tehran University, and according to US intelligence reports, they believe he was connected to Irans nuclear program. While Iran is not confirming this, Mohammadi was known as a major supporter of the revolution which toppled the shah in 1979, clearing the way for the Islamic fundamentalist regime.

An Israel Radio Reshet Bet report states that some sources in Iran are pointing a finger of blame at Israel, calling the explosion an Israeli assassination. There has not been any comment on the reported explosion from official sources in Jerusalem. (Yechiel Spira YWN Israel)
