An Iranian nuclear scientist has been killed and another wounded in two separate but similar attacks in Tehran.

Both men were closely involved in Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.

Their wives, who were travelling with them, were also injured.

Iran’s nuclear activities have always been mired in controversy. Tehran says it wants to produce energy, but the West fears it is trying to build a bomb.

Media in Iran say Israeli agents are behind today’s attacks.
