US denies role in Iranian nuclear scientist's murder

A U.S. official on Tuesday rejected Iranian accusations that the United States had a role in the killing of a Tehran University nuclear scientist.

The scientist, Massoud Ali-Mohammadi, was killed by a remote-controlled bomb, according to Iranian state media. Iran blamed the attack on the United States and Israel.

Charges of U.S. involvement are "absurd," said a U.S. State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
