Iran has arrested a "network of spies" linked to the Mossad intelligence service it claimed planned the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist in 2010, Reuters reported.

Masoud Alimohammadi, a university scientist, was killed when a bomb attached to a motorcycle detonated outside his home in Tehran on January 12 last year.

"The network of spies and terrorists linked to...Mossad was destroyed," Iranian state television quoted a comment released by the intelligence ministry as saying. "The network was behind the assassination of Masoud Alimohammadi."
