"Iranian authorities accuse U.S., Israeli intelligence services."
According to an announcement by Iran's Intelligence Ministry, the Iranian security forces arrested the elements of the terror attack on Iran's nuclear scientist, Dr. Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, and annihilated the "spying and terrorist network of the Zionist regime" of Israel linked to the assassination, said state IRINN TV.
The announcement stated, "In order to carry out its non-human, anti-Islamic and anti-Iranian wills, the Mossad (Israeli intelligence agency) has used its bases in some European, non- European and some neighboring states of the Islamic Republic to conduct the terror attack against Dr. Massoud Ali-Mohammadi."
The announcement also noted that in the near future the detailed information concerning the arrests will be issued.
In January 2010, Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, the nuclear scientist from Tehran University, was killed by a remote-controlled bomb attached to a motorbike parked near his house.
In November, another Iranian nuclear scientist Majid Shahriar was also killed by a bomb attached to his car on the way to his work. Iranian authorities have been accusing the U.S. and Israeli intelligence services.
