'Mossad, MKO killed Iranian scientist'
American journalist Richard Silverstein said the assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a senior official at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility, brings to mind the terrorist acts committed against other Iranian scientists in recent years.
Unknown individuals attached a sticky bomb to Ahmadi Roshan's car and detonated it on Wednesday.
Ahmadi Roshan was a Sharif University of Technology chemical engineering graduate and served as marketing deputy of Iran's Natanz nuclear facility.
On November 29, 2010, unidentified terrorists slapped adhesive bombs onto the vehicles of Iranian university professors Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi and detonated them.
Professor Shahriari was killed immediately, but Dr. Abbasi, the current director of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, and his wife sustained minor injuries and were rushed to a hospital.
On December 2, 2010, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced that the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, and the British MI6 all played a role in those attacks.
Professor Masoud Ali-Mohammadi, another scholar at Tehran University, was assassinated by a booby-trapped motorbike in the Iranian capital in January 2010.
The bombing took place near the professor's home in northern Tehran.
