The U.S. and Israel are the main suspects in the Iranian nuclear scientist's assassination case, Iranian MP Kazem Jalali told journalists, Mehr reported.

Earlier today, an Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan was killed in a terrorist bomb blast in north Tehran.

The magnetic bomb which was planted by an unknown motorcyclist under the car of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a professor at Tehran's technical university, also wounded two other Iranian nationals in Seyed Khandan neighborhood in Northern Tehran.

Jalali said Ahmadi-Roshan met with the IAEA inspectors a few weeks before the assassination. Iranian MP added that all Iranian nuclear scientists, who have been assassinated over the last two years, were on the UN Security Council's black list.

Jalili underscored that Ahmadi-Roshan was assassinated because his "name was leaked by the IAEA".

The assassination method was similar to the 2010 terrorist bomb attacks against the then university professor, Fereidoun Abbassi Davani and his colleague Majid Shahriari who were assassinated in separate terrorist bomb attacks in Tehran with the latter killed immediately after the blast.

Another Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.
