ew York, Jan 14, IRNA -- United Nations Secretary general Ban Ki-moon said on Friday that any killing like that of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran last Wednesday was to be condemned.

'Any terrorist act or killing anybody either a scientist or a civilian is strongly condemned,” UN Spokesman Eduardo del Buey Quoted Ban as saying.

He added, “This act is not acceptable, human rights must be protected and maintained.”

Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, 32, was killed by a magnetic bomb which a motorbike put on his car somewhere close to a Tehran university on Wednesday morning.

Tehran has said that the act is part of a hidden fight of Israel and the USA against Iran, but the US has denied involvement in the killing and condemned it.

The Zionist regime has declined to comment.
