Who's behind the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist? According to an Iranian statement broadcasted on the Islamic Republic's official TV Channel, Tehran has conclusive evidence that the United States plotted the assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan last week.


Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said his country has obtained "credible documents that prove the terror attack was planned, supervised and supported by the CIA," adding that he has filed an official complaint with the Swiss Embassy in Iran, which is also handles US affairs in the area.

A similar denunciation was addressed to Britain, claiming that the assassination took place shortly after the British themselves declared "the commencement of intelligence operations against Iran."


According to reports, two motorcyclists attached two magnetic bombs to Roshan's Peugeot 405, killing him and his driver on Wednesday. Roshan was a chemistry expert and director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in central.


Immediately after the incident, Iranian authorities accused Israel and United States for masterminding the attack," but both have either denied involvement or refused to comment on the incident.


Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Thursday that those behind the killing of a nuclear scientist in Tehran would be punished.


However, White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said the United States "had absolutely nothing to do" with Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan's death. Vietor added that the US condemns "all acts of violence."


President Shimon Peres also commented on the incident, telling CNN Spanish that to the best of his knowledge Israel was not involved in the assassination.
