TEHRAN - Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Thursday that those behind the killing of a nuclear scientist in Tehran would be punished, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"We will continue our path with strong will ... and certainly we will not neglect punishing those responsible for this act and those behind it," Khamenei was quoted as saying.

Iran blamed its arch-enemies, Israel and the United States, for a blast which killed the nuclear scientist in his car on Wednesday, insisting the incident would not change the country's nuclear course.

The US and its allies say Iran's nuclear program is aimed at producing weapons. Iran says the program is for peaceful purposes only.
