Global peace came under threat today with the assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist in a bomb attack as a vehicle exploded near his vehicle.

Reports by CNN quoting Iranian state news, said Moshen Fakhrizadeh was allegedly killed by Israeli agents. There is no reaction from Tel Aviv at press time.
