Iran Executed Nuclear Scientist that Collaborated with US

Iran’s official news agency, IRNA confirmed that Iran has executed by hanging a nuclear scientist who gave the US intelligence about the country’s contested nuclear program.

The Sunday report quotes a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary, Gholamhosein Mohseni Ejehi, as confirming the execution of Shahram Amiri. He says Mr. Amiri “provided the enemy with vital information of the country.”

US officials in 2010 said they paid Mr. Amiri some $5-M to defect and provide “significant” information about Iran’s atomic program. But Mr. Amiri later fled the US without the money.

Iranian officials previously said Mr. Amiri’s had been abducted by US agents while on a pilgrimage to holy sites in Saudi Arabia. They welcomed him home in Y 2010 as a hero.

Earlier foreign media reports cited Mr. Amiri’s mother saying her son had been executed by Iran.
