Report: Iran holds US, Britain accountable for nuclear expert assassination
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) ' Iran's official news agency says the country is holding both the United States and Britain accountable for the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist.
A Saturday report by IRNA news agency says Tehran sent two separate diplomatic notes to Britain and the United States, insisting that both countries had an "obvious role" in the Wednesday killing of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan.
The U.S. has denied having any role in the slaying. Britain's Foreign Office condemned the killing of civilians after the attack.
Since 2010, blasts have killed at least four Iranian nuclear scientists.
