Iranian nuclear scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi was killed in a rare bomb attack in Tehran which state media quickly blamed on "counter-revolutionaries" and foreign powers.
Mohammadi, a lecturer at Tehran University, died when a bomb strapped to a motorcycle was triggered by remote control outside his home in northern Tehran, state media said.
Iran's TV alluded that Mohammadi had had political responsibilities, but it did not elaborate on what those responsibilities constituted.
