‘Missing’ Iranian Nuclear Scientist Surfaces in D.C.; Asks to Go Home

TEHRAN — A nuclear scientist, who Tehran says was kidnapped by the United States, has surfaced at the Iranian interest section of the Pakistani embassy in Washington, Iranian state media reported Tuesday. It is unclear if he sought refuge by himself at the mission or was handed over by U.S. officials.

News services reported that the scientist, Shahram Amiri, is asking to return to Iran. An official at the Pakistani embassy, in the 3500 block of International Court NW, declined to comment early Tuesday.

Mostafa Rahmani, head of the Iranian office in Washington, confirmed the report to the Associated Press and said his country’s foreign ministry will “release details later.”
