Iran said one of its most prominent nuclear scientists was assassinated on Friday in an attack on his car outside Tehran that it accused arch foe Israel of being behind. Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said there were "serious indications of an Israeli role" in the scientist's assassination. "Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today," Zarif wrote on Twitter. "This cowardice -- with serious indications of Israeli role -- shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators," he added. Biden has has promised a return to diplomacy with Iran after four hawkish years under incumbent US President Donald Trump, who withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018 and began reimposing crippling sanctions.
