Car Bombs in Iran Kill Nuclear Scientists


iran1Two explosions this morning have killed two nuclear scientists in separate attacks in different areas in Tehran. Iranian media, quoted by Voice of Israel government radio, reported that the scientists were university lecturers. Details of the explosions have not been reported except that in one attack, a bomb blew up a car whose passengers included a nuclear scientist and his wife. At least one of them was killed, and the other blast also killed a scientist.

The explosions occurred hours after the WikiLeaks report that Israel has advised the United States to topple the Iranian regime and that Saudi Arabia asked the American government to attack Iran in order to stop Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from continuing his program to develop and manufacture nuclear weapons.

He has denied the charges, saying that the nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes.

Iran’s computer networks were attacked recently by the Stuxnet worm, delaying progress on nuclear empowerment.
