DUBAI - Iranian state television aired what it described as confessions of individuals accused of assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists, saying they worked as Israeli agents to sabotage the country's nuclear program.

Five Iranian scientists and academics have been killed or attacked since 2010 in incidents believed to have targeted Iran's disputed nuclear program, which the West says is aimed at producing a bomb.

Iran denies this, saying its nuclear program has peaceful purposes, and denounced the killings of its scientists as acts of terrorism carried out by Western intelligence agencies and the Mossad.

In a documentary aired on Sunday evening, called "Terror Club" and set to a dramatic score, a group of men and women sit against black backgrounds and confess to receiving weeks of training in Israel, then returning to Iran to carry out the killings of nuclear scientists.
