The Age reported:

A nuclear physics professor who publicly backed opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi in the June presidential election was killed on Tuesday when a bomb-rigged motorcycle blew up outside his home.

State media identified the victim as Masoud Ali Mohammadi, a professor at Tehran University, which has been at the centre of recent protests by student opposition supporters. Before the election, pro-reform Web sites published Mohammadi’s name among a list of 240 university teachers who supported Mousavi.

The government blamed the attack Tuesday on an armed Iranian opposition group under the direction of Israel and the US.

Planet Iran has video from the scene moments after the explosion.
