Shahid Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan

A terrorist car bomb explosion around a square in northern Tehran killed yet another Iranian nuclear scientist. The victim, identified as Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, was a chemical engineering graduate of Iran’s prominent Sharif University of Technology and served as commercial deputy of Natanz nuclear installation. Witnesses say they spotted a motorcyclist attaching a sticky bomb to Ahmadi Roshan’s car near a college of Allameh Tabatabaei University in Tehran on Wednesday morning, Presstv reported.
Ahmadi Roshan was killed instantly and his colleague, identified as Reza Qashqaei, and a bystander, who had sustained injuries, were transferred to Resalat Hospital.
Qashqaei passed away on Wednesday due to the severity of his wounds. An investigation is underway over the incident.
Wednesday’s terror bombing bears the hallmark of a 2010 terror attack that killed Majid Shahriari, another university professor, in Tehran.
On November 29, 2010, unidentified terrorists slapped sticky bombs onto the vehicles of Iranian university professors Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi and detonated them.
Prof. Shahriari was killed immediately, but Dr. Abbasi, the current director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, and his wife sustained minor injuries and were rushed to a hospital.
On December 2, 2010, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced that the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA and the British MI6 all played a role in those attacks
