The Islamic Republic's Intelligence Ministry on Tuesday publicly exhibited computers, weapons and secret equipment allegedly used to carry out the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist last year.
The Iranian government claimed that the computer used by the assassins were encrypted so they could contact their operators while staying outside of the country.
The ayatollahs' regime claimed on Monday that it had arrested more than 10 people on suspicion of involvement in the murder of Masoud Ali Mohammadi – a senior physician who was killed in Tehran last year after a booby-trapped motorcycle was placed near his home.
Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi convened a special press conference on Tuesday to announce the discovery, and presented the reporters with equipment that Mossad allegedly gave the secret agents.

Among the items was a laptop computer, which according to Irna news agency was confiscated during the arrest of the suspected spies.
The reporters were also presented with several guns and ammunition, as well as the instrument in which the assassins allegedly hid the explosives that killed Prof. Mohammadi.
The Iranian minister also displayed "spying equipment designed to make videos and pictures, a radio transmitter, a box with documents and equipment to forge documents."

During the press conference, Moslehi noted that Iranian intelligence managed to infiltrate Israeli intelligence services and trace Mossad agents who he said were operating in Iran.
"We obtained good intelligence and managed to penetrate into the intelligence of this regime, on order to locate people who are linked to the Zionist regime," he added.
The Iranian TV network broadcasted on Monday an interview with 28-year-old Majid Jamali Fash, one of the key suspects arrested for his links to the spying network.
During the interview, Fash claimed he traveled to Tel-Aviv and met a number of senior IDF officers.
"I received sabotage training," he said, but did not reveal the date of his visit to Israel.
"I was trained how to follow and avoid being followed, as well as how to attach a bomb underneath a vehicle," he said during the televised "confession".
