’Israel behind murder of Iranian particle physicist’


Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, assassinated in Tehran on 12 January 2010.

Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar says the assassination of nuclear physics professor Massoud Ali-Mohammadi was a premeditated act carried out by the Israeli government.

"The Israelis are naive to think that through committing such crimes they can curtail the country’s achievements in science and technology," Mohammad-Najjar said in an interview on Tuesday.

Dr. Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at the University of Tehran who taught particle physics, was killed in a remote-controlled bomb attack in the Iranian capital on January 12.

The professor was killed in front of his home in the Qeytariyeh neighborhood in northern Tehran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry had earlier declared that Iran had discovered traces of US and Israeli involvement in the assassination of Ali-Mohammadi.
