TEHRAN, Iran (AP) --According to associated press reporter, Ali Akbar Dareini, assailants on motorcycles attached bombs to the car of two nuclear scientists as they were driving to work in Tehran monday, killing one and seriously wounding the other, state television reported.
Tehran is the Iranian capital and has been reported to had previous attacks that killed other nuclear scientists. State TV blames Israel for the attacks. While, the government of Iran claims that either Israeli or the U.S. governments did this as part of an attempt to damage their nuclear program.
Washington denies any allegations connecting them to any attacks.
The nuclear program is at the center of controversy between Iran and the U.S. and its allies. A number of the world powers suspect Iran is trying to make nuclear weapons. An allegation the Iranian government denies.
Iranian vice-president, Salehi told official news agents, that the patience of the Iranian nation has limits and if it runs out there will be consequences for whoever is responsible. That the enemies of Iran will pay.
Tehran's refusal to limit some of its nuclear activities has brought on multiple disputes by the United Nation to place further sanctions against the country.
