Iran Blames Israel For Nuclear Scientist Death

Iran has blamed Israel for the murder of a nuclear scientist who was killed by a bomb that had been attached to his car.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, 32, died after two unidentified men on a motorbike fastened a magnetic bomb to his vehicle outside a university in east Tehran.
