An Iranian official said Israel was behind a car-bomb assassination of an Iranian scientist in Tehran on Wednesday, pointing to similarities with previous killings of other nuclear scientists.
"The responsibility of this explosion falls on the Zionist regime," the governor of Tehran province, Safar Ali Bratloo, told Iran's Arabic-language Al-Alam broadcaster.
"The method of this terrorist action is similar to previous actions that targeted Iran's nuclear scientists," he said.
