Strongly denying any American role in the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist this week, US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta has said that he has some idea on who was behind the killing in Tehran.
Addressing soldiers at Fort Bliss in Texas, Panetta said the US was not involved in any way in the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist, a charge levied by Tehran.
"I'm not sure who was involved. We have some ideas as to who might be involved. But we don't know exactly who was involved," Panetta said, but did not divulge any further details.
32-year-old Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan was killed on Wednesday by motorbike hitmen who put a magnetic bomb on his car on a busy street in Tehran.
Iran has accused the US and Israel of carrying out attacks against its nuclear scientists.
"I can tell you one thing: The United States was not involved in that kind of effort. That's not what the United States does," said the Defence Secretary.
