Iran’s Rouhani accuses Israel of murdering a nuclear scientist

The Iranian president accused Israel on Saturday of the murder of a prominent Iranian scientist long suspected by the West of devising a secret nuclear bomb program, state television reported.

Iranian cleric and military rulers have threatened revenge for the murder of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh on Friday, who died in hospital after hitmen shot him in his car near Tehran, according to Iranian media.

“Once again, the evil hands of global arrogance were smeared with the blood of the mercenary usurper Zionist regime,” President Hassan Rouhani said in a statement, state television said.
