Iran confirms nuclear scientist killed in bomb blast

The university lecturer killed in a bomb blast in the Iranian capital on Tuesday was a nuclear scientist, Tehran's prosecutor told ISNA news agency.

"Massoud Ali Mohammadi was a lecturer in nuclear energy and no suspects have yet been arrested," Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi said, adding that he was climbing into his car when a nearby parked motorbike exploded.

Another Iranian news agency, Borna news, said Mohammadi was a "senior nuclear scientist of the country," quoting unnamed sources.
