A car bomb explosion around a square in northern Tehran has killed one university lecturer and wounded two other people. Witnesses say they saw a motorcycle attach a sticky bomb to a car near a college of Allameh Tabatabaei University on Wednesday. An investigation is underway to probe the incident.
The bomb was a magnetic one and the same as the ones previously used for the assassination of the scientists, and is the work of the Zionists (Israelis)" Fars quoted Deputy Governor Safarali Baratloo as saying.

How in the world do these murderers find out who these Iranian scientists names and locations are? The IAEA?
Resolution 1747 adopted by the United Nations Security Council in March 2007 against the Islamic Republic cited Abbasi's name as a "nuclear scientist," thus suggesting that perpetrators behind the assassination could be traced through those who included the professor's name in the UN resolution.
Iran semi-official Fars agency says professor killed in Tehran was nuclear scientist (Haaretz)
A nuclear scientist who supervised a department at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility has been killed by a bomb placed on his car by a motorcyclist in northern Tehran, Iranian media reported.
The incident on Wednesday coincided with the anniversary of a explosion that killed a senior Iranian nuclear scientist.
The head of Tehran's emergency services, Hassan Abbasi, was quoted on Wednesday by the ISNA news agency saying: "A Peugeot 405 exploded this morning in Ketabi Square in eastern Tehran near the Social Sciences faculty of Allameh Tabatai University."
The semi-official Fars news agency cited witnesses as saying a motorcyclist stuck a magnetic bomb on the side of the car which then exploded, killing one and injuring two people inside.
Fars identified the victim as Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, whom state-run Press TV said was both a university lecturer and a scientist.
"What we know about him is that he was a chemistry graduate from Sharif University," Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari said.
This isn't the first scientist to die by a terrorist act and certainly won't be the last. And I am sure this has nothing to do with the western nations being furious over Iran & nuclear capability. No sir, no connection at all. I mean, no real detective would think to look there. Dee dee dee
