Who killed Iranian nuke scientist?

Report: Mossad killed Iranian scientist

Western intelligence sources tell Time Mossad behind assassination of nuclear expert last week; 'I don't feel sad for him," Israeli official says

Israel's Mossad was behind the recent killing of a senior Iranian nuclear scientist, Western intelligence sources told Time Magazine.


"Like three previous Iranian scientists ambushed on their morning commute, the latest nuclear expert to die on his way to work was a victim of Israel's Mossad," Time reported Saturday.


Relates stories:


Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was killed by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in Tehran on Wednesday, prompting officials in Iran to blame Israel for the assassination.


"Yeah, one more," a senior Israeli official reportedly told Time in reference to Roshan's killing. "I don't feel sad for him."


Intelligence sources told the magazine last week's attack "followed the pattern of previous operations planned by Mossad and carried out over the past two years by Iranians trained and paid by Israel's spy agency."


Speaking in Cuba, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad commented Thursday on the latest assassination, saying that Iran was "being punished for no reason."


Speaking before students at Havana University, Ahmadinejad said: "Have we ever attacked anyone? Have we sought more than we need? Never. We only want to pursue justice."


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