Iran has hanged a man it said was an agent for Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. The man was convicted of killing an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran two years ago.
(REUTERS) DUBAI - Twenty-four year old Majid Jamali Fashi was hanged at Tehran's Evin Prison after being sentenced to death in August last year for the murder of Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, Iran's state news agency quoted the central prosecutor's office as saying. It said he had confessed to the crime.
Ali-Mohammadi was killed in January 2010 when a remote-controlled bomb attached to a motorcycle outside his home in Tehran went off.
