Another Iranian Nuclear Scientist Goes Blooey

Remind me not to be a nuclear scientist in Iran. From Ynet:

Another mysterious blast in Tehran: Iranian media reported Wednesday that a university professor was killed by a magnetic bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in Tehran on Wednesday.

According to Iranian media reports, the incident, which took place at the Seyed Khandan neighborhood in Northern Tehran, “looks similar to attacks on nuclear scientists in the city,” more than one year ago.

The semi-official Fars news agency identified the victim as Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, 32, “an oil professor at Tehran’s technical university and nuclear scientist.” The report referred to the attack as an act of terror.

Roshan was a supervisor at a department at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in Isfahan province.

This is the third Iranian nuclear scientist to meet an unfortunate end.
