Car bombs kill & injure Iranian nuclear scientists

".. Two car bomb blasts killed one Iranian nuclear scientist and wounded another in Tehran on Monday, Iran's al Alam Arabic language television reported.
The bombings, rare attacks in the Iranian capital, occurred ahead of a possible meeting between Iran and major powers next month to discuss the country's nuclear program. Analysts say information about Iran's nuclear activities is very valuable for the United States and its allies, particularly ahead of the meeting...
"Majid Shahriyari was martyred and his wife was injured ... Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani and his wife were both wounded," state radio said. "The attackers planted a bomb on each of the teachers' vehicles."...
Another nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, was killed by a remote controlled bomb in Tehran in January...Western sources said in January that Mohammadi worked closely with Fereydoun Abbassi-Davani, who was subjected to U.N. sanctions because of his work on suspected nuclear weapons development...."
