Tehran, Iran (CNN) — A nuclear scientist was killed in a blast in a Tehran neighborhood Wednesday morning, an Iranian news agency reported, the latest in a string of attacks against such scientists that Iran has blamed on Israel.
A motorcyclist placed a magnetic bomb under Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan’s Peugeot 405, the state-run IRNA news agency said. The blast also wounded two others, IRNA said.
State television channel Press TV reported later Wednesday that Roshan’s driver, named as Reza Qashqaei, had died in a hospital from his injuries.
Roshan, 32, was a deputy director for commercial affairs at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in Isfahan province and a graduate of Iran’s Oil Industry University, according to the semi-official news agency Fars.
My own sources have told me there will be more and better information coming shortly on this event from witness at site. However, my sources also tell me that information is getting increasingly difficult to send out of Iran. Below I’ll paste what was sent to me just now:
From here on Iranians can only use email for communication. (Yahoo and Gmail only HTML). VPN services provided from outside soon will end too and Internet is extremely slow and . almost non.
Facebook and everything else is filtered.Iranians are all very concerned that soon they will be cut-off from the outside world and will be unaware of what is goingon with this government and how its irresponsible actions will impact everyday security, safety, and daily lives of them (the people).As you know the satellites dishes are being destroyed.You may want to use this article as a resource:There is plenty of good information in this article and it gives a very clear picture of current and future human rights violationsby a state-controlled internet.
