Ynet News reports:
A pair of gunmen firing from motorcycles killed an Iranian physicist involved in the country’s disputed nuclear program on Saturday in an attack similar to other recent assassinations of scientists that Tehran blamed on the US and Israel.
“An Iranian nuclear scientist was assassinated in front of his house today … and his wife was also wounded,” it said. ISNA identified the victim as Darioush Rezaei, a 46-year-old physics professor involved in Iran’s nuclear program.
Rezaei was reportedly a physics professor whose area of expertise was neutron transport, which lies at the heart of nuclear chain reactions in reactors and bombs. One of the earlier assassinations, in November, killed a man with the same specialization.
The official IRNA news agency said that “heartless terrorists” were behind the killing.
