Nuclear physicist executed in Iran after returning from USA


Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri was executed after he returned from the United States. This was reported on Sunday by BBC News.

According to British journalists, Amiri’s mother told that the body of the physics was returned to his family. There were traces of hanging on his neck. The family buried him.

The name of the physicist Amiri became widely known in 2009. At that time, he disappeared leaving no trace after a pilgrimage to Mecca. A year later he was discovered in the United States. As he said later, he was kidnapped by the CIA to make him disclose secret information about Iran’s nuclear program. However, Amiri managed to escape, and returned to Iran, where he was greeted as a hero. At the same time, the American side insisted that Amiri fled to the United States of his own will, and provided “useful information.”

As reported by BBC News, in 2011 the nuclear physicist was accused of treason in Iran, and nobody heard anything about him for a long time.
