Hmmm.... Nothing to do with the nuke program?

Iranian Deputy Minister of Industry Safdar Rahmat Abadi was shot and killed in Tehran on Sunday night. Thus far, at least, it is being claimed that he had no connection to the Mullahcracy's nuclear program.
"Investigations show that two shots were fired from inside the vehicle," the agency quoted a police official as saying.
"That two shells were found inside the car shows a strong likelihood that the assailant was inside the car and in conversation with Mr. Abadi. There was no sign of struggle at the scene of the killing."
The student news agency ISNA said a special homicide investigator and criminal prosecutor were at the scene. It cited a judiciary source as saying no arrests had yet been made.
There has been a surge of attacks against Iranian military and provincial officials in recent weeks, but Abadi's killing appeared to be the first reported fatal shooting of a senior central government official in years.
Iranian Sunni Islamists claimed responsibility for the killing of an Iranian prosecutor in Sistan Baluchistan province last week. They said it was revenge for the hanging of 16 prisoners carried out by judiciary officials after an attack by the Jaish ul-Adl group of Sunni Islamist militants in which 14 border guards were killed.
There was no immediate indication that the killing had anything to do with Iran's nuclear dispute with the West.
