Iran names attacked scientist nuclear chief: report

TEHRAN — An Iranian nuclear scientist who survived an assassination attempt last November has been appointed Iran’s new nuclear chief, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Sunday.

Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani was slightly wounded by one of two bomb attacks on November 29. The other attack killed another nuclear scientist. Tehran said the double-bombing was an Israeli operation aimed at harming its nuclear programme.

Abbasi-Davani, head of physics at Imam Hossein University, has been personally subjected to U.N. sanctions because of what western officials said was his involvement in suspected nuclear weapons research.
