Iran says Israel killed military nuclear scientist remotely

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A top Iranian security official says Israel used “electronic devices” to remotely kill a military nuclear scientist. Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of the country’s Supreme National Security Council, made the comment on Monday to Iranian state television at the funeral for Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. His remark drastically changes the story of Fakhrizadeh’s killing, which took place on Friday. Authorities initially said that a truck exploded and then gunmen opened fire on the scientist, killing him. Israel has been suspected of killing Iranian nuclear scientists over the last decade. It has repeatedly declined to comment on the attack.
