Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has accused Israel and Western governments of being behind the killing of a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist in a bombing Monday.

Assailants on motorcycles attached bombs to the cars of two nuclear scientists as they were driving to work in Teheran Monday, killing one and wounding the other, Iranian officials said.Speaking at a press conference, Ahmadinejad said that "undoubtedly the hand of the Zionist regime and Western governments is involved" in the killing.

But he said the assassination would not stop Iran from pursuing its nuclear programs.
