Iranian Nuclear Scientists Targeted By Explosions

Two separate explosions killed a nuclear scientist and injured another in the Iranian capital Monday morning, official news outlets reported.

Both scholars' wives and a driver were also injured in the attacks, according to the news agencies. The slain scientist, Majid Shahriari, was a member of the nuclear engineering team at the Shahid Behesti university in Tehran, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency, or IRNA.

Although no arrests have been made, Iran is , of course, blaming "The Zionists" (Israel) and Western Powers, according to a statement statement by the office of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

On the heels of the Stuxnet computer worm that crippled portions of Iran's nuclear capabilities, one might be inclined to assume that someone, or many someones according to the Wikileaks cables just released, might just not want Iran to have a nuclear bomb.

Just a guess.
