IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 11, IRNA -- Enemies should know that they are not able to prevent the Iranian nation from achieving its objectives in various scientific fields, said First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi while condemning this morning terrorist attack in Tehran.

Those who claim they are advocates of anti-terrorism campaign, have targetted the Iranian scientists, said Rahimi on Wednesday.

The Iranian scientists become more determined to take steps in line with the aspirations of the Islmaic Republic in spite of terrorist operations, said Rahimi referring to assassination of Iranian university lecturer, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, in eastern Tehran this morning.

The Iranian scientist was assassinated by agents of both arrogant powers and the Zionist regime, noted the VP.

Ahmadi Roshan was killed while two others injured when a magnetic bomb attached to his car exploded.

The explosion took place after a motorcyclist stuck a bomb on the side of the car, a Peugeot 405, in Ketabi square in eastern Tehran, this morning.
