  • IRAN: A prominent Iranian University professor has been assassinated by unknown terrorists, informed sources with the Iranian police say.

    Daryoush Rezaienejad and his wife were on their way to their child's kindergarten when they were approached by two men on motorbikes.

    The gunmen called him by name and shot Rezaei, 35, in the neck when he turned around.

    The gunmen chased Rezaeinejad's wife who attempted to find help for her husband.

    She is currently in hospital, a Press TV correspondent reported.

    No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.

    Initially, local Iranian media had reported that Daryoush Rezaienejad was a nuclear physicist.

    The confusion was apparently cause by the similarity between his name and that of nuclear physicist Daryoush Rezaei.
