Israel and US behind Tehran blast - Iranian state media

The BBC's Jon Leyne says Iran's opposition members will fear the attack could be used against them

Iranian state media have accused Israel and the US of being involved in a bomb attack which killed an Iranian physicist in Tehran.
State broadcaster Irib quoted Iran's foreign ministry spokesman as saying there were signs of Israeli and US involvement "in the terrorist act".

Masoud Ali Mohammadi - described as a "devoted revolutionary professor" - was killed by a remotely-controlled bomb.
Israel and the US have so far made no comments about Tuesday's blast.
Reports in the Iranian media described Mr Mohammadi as a nuclear physicist, but it appears that his field of study may have been quantum theory.

The bomb blast happened at a time of heightened tension in Iran, following June's disputed presidential election and mass protests against the government.

'Arrogant powers'

Mr Mohammadi, who worked at Tehran University, "was killed in a booby-trapped motorbike blast" in the city's northern Qeytariyeh district, state-run Press TV reported earlier.

If Israelis can't attack Iran

To stop the N program, they can try to terrorise Iranian N scientists. They are good at creating wars and destruction. I have no doubt that their hands are in this.
