An Iranian nuclear scientist was killed and another injured in separate car bombs Monday in Tehran, the capital of Iran.

Assailants on motorcycles attached magnetized bombs to each car as they were driving to work. They exploded seconds later.

Majid Shahriari, the scientist killed, was apart of the nuclear engineering program at Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran, the BBC reported.

The wounded scientist, Fereydoon Abbasi, was reported in Iranian media as one of the country's few specialists who can separate isotopes.

According to Yahoo News Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Western governments are involved in the assassination, including Israel.
