Navideshahed: The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), with 120 member states from across the globe, issued a communiqué to condemn the Wednesday assassination of an Iranian university professor and scientist.

"The Non-Aligned Movement Coordinating Bureau, while reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack that occurred in Tehran, the Islamic Republic of Iran, on 11 January 2012, causing the death of another prominent Iranian scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, and the injury of a number of others," NAM said in its statement on Thursday.

"The Movement expresses its deep sympathy and sincere condolences to the victims of this heinous act and to their families, and to the government and people of the Islamic Republic of Iran," it added.

Ahmadi Roshan, a 32-year-old chemistry professor and deputy director of commerce at Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was killed in a terrorist bomb blast in a Northern Tehran neighborhood on Wednesday morning.

The magnetic bomb which was planted by an unknown motorcyclist under Roshans car also wounded two other Iranian nationals, including his driver who died at a nearby hospital a few hours later on Wednesday.

NAM further reminded a similar statement that it had issued to condemn the assassination of several other Iranian scientists in the last two years.

"The NAM Coordinating Bureau further recalls paragraph 205.14 of the Bali Final Document adopted by the 16th NAM Ministerial Conference held in Bali, Indonesia, on 25 and 26 May 2011, that strongly condemned a number of terrorist attacks against Iranian scientists, which resulted in the loss of valuable human resources essential to the development of any country," the world bloc said.

The Wednesday blast took place on the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, who was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.

The assassination method used in the Wednesday bombing was similar to the 2010 terrorist bomb attacks against the then university professor, Fereidoun Abbassi Davani - who is now the head of Irans Atomic Energy Organization - and his colleague Majid Shahriari. Abbasi Davani survived the attack, when Shahriari was killed.

Another Iranian scientist, Dariush Rezaeinejad, was also assassinated through the same method on 23 July 2011.

United Nations Secretary general Ban Ki-moon said on Friday that any killing like that of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran last Wednesday was to be condemned.

Any terrorist act or killing anybody either a scientist or a civilian is strongly condemned," UN Spokesman Eduardo del Buey Quoted Ban as saying.

He added, "This act is not acceptable, human rights must be protected and maintained."
Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, 32, was killed by a magnetic bomb which a motorbike put on his car somewhere close to a Tehran university on Wednesday morning.

Tehran has said that the act is part of a hidden fight of Israel and the USA against Iran, but the US has denied involvement in the killing and condemned it.

The Zionist regime has declined to comment.
