Iran Shooting Victim Was Student

Iran announced that the person killed in a shooting on Saturday was a student and not a nuclear physicist, as previously reported. It had initially been thought that gunmen on motorcycles had killed Darioush Rezaei, a physics professor whom reports linked to the country’s nuclear program. But the victim was later revealed to be Darioush Rezaeinejad, a student at Khajeh Nasir University. The original report sounded similar to several recent assassinations of scientists, which Tehran accused the U.S. and Israel of orchestrating.
