Iran on Tuesday executed a man accused of taking part in the assassination of a nuclear scientist while in the employ of the Mossad in 2010, official Iranian news agency IRNA reported.

"Majid Jamali Fashi, the Mossad spy and the person who assassinated Masoud Ali Mohammadi, our nation's nuclear scientist was hanged Tuesday morning," IRNA quoted Tehran prosecutors as saying.

Fashi had pleaded guilty to murdering Mohammadi in January 2010, the first of several attacks on scientists which Iran said were the work of enemies that wished to stop it developing nuclear technology. He was sentenced to death in August.
