Covert war on Iran's nuclear program reaches into Tehran

(DEBKAfile) — The covert war against Iran’s nuclear program struck deep inside the Islamic Republic with the death Tuesday, Jan. 12 of nuclear physicist professor Masoud Ali Mohammadi, 50, by a remote-controlled exploding motorbike as he left his Tehran home. He was a senior professor at Tehran University which DEBKAfile‘s Iranian sources say is an important hub of nuclear weapons research.

Those sources stress that his death was unrelated to the political turbulence sweeping Iran since the June elections; state-run Press TV described him as a “staunch supporter” of Iran’s 1979 revolution.

The targeting of the scientists in the heart of Tehran by a remote-controlled explosion shows that the covert agencies working to sabotage Iran’s controversial nuclear program have managed to plant death squads in the Iranian capital like those operating in Damascus.
