More reaction to assassination of nuclear physicist Ali Mohammadi, from today’s Iran News Round Up:
* Rafsanjani condemns, but does not make allegations against foreign enemies as perpetrators of the crime, warns instead against “a new round of conspiracies.”
* Pres. Mohammad Khatami condemns “the evil hand which has perpetrated this crime,” but fails to make mention of foreign enemies.
* Speaker of the Parliament Ali Larijani says it is the Mossad and the CIA and not the Monarchist Association who are behind the assassination.
* Despite the Revolutionary Guards’ attempt to depict the late scientist Ali Mohamamdi as a regime supporter, JARAS documents that Mohammadi had signed an open letter criticizing the Revolutionary Guards and Law Enforcement Forces attack against Tehran University dormitory.
