Particle physicist Ali-Mohammadi was assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010. The university professor was killed by a remote-control bomb attached to a motorbike.

The Iranian Intelligence Ministry recently issued a statement declaring that the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad was behind the murder of the prominent scientist.

Professor Shahriari was also targeted in a terrorist attack on November 29, 2010. He was on his way to work at Shahid Beheshti University in northern Tehran when he was attacked. In the attack, a magnetic bomb was attached to the physicist's car.
