The regime blamed Israel for the bombing.

Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, a leading nuclear scientist and lecturer in Iran, was killed today in a car bombing.
The BBC reported, via Free Republic:

A university lecturer and nuclear scientist has been killed in a car explosion in north Tehran, reports say.

Iranian media sources named the casualty as Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, an academic who also worked at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

The blast happened when a motorcyclist stuck a magnetic bomb on the car, said Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

Several Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated in recent years, with Iran blaming Israel and the US.

Both countries deny the accusations.

Local sources said Wednesday’s blast took place at a faculty of Iran’s Allameh Tabatai university.
