Wounded Iran Nuclear Scientist Named in UN List

TEHRAN, Iran -- An Iranian nuclear scientist wounded in a bomb attack Monday is on a U.N. list of figures under sanctions for suspected links to secret nuclear activities.

A U.N. Security Council resolution in 2007 includes Fereidoun Abbasi in a list of nuclear personnel under an international travel ban and asset freeze.

Abbasi was wounded Monday when, according to Iranian officials, an attacker stuck a bomb to his car as he headed to work. A similar attack Monday killed another nuclear scientist.

According to the U.N. resolution, Abbasi is a Defense Ministry scientist with links to the Institute of Applied Physics, and working closely with Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, another nuclear scientist on the sanctions list.
