Tehran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that "Zionist" methods were used in the attack on a leading nuclear scientist, who was killed in a bombing outside his Tehran home, a report said.

"One can see the level of enemy's grudge in the way he was assassinated. The method of bombing was a Zionist one," the Mehr news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

The scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, died when a bomb strapped to a motorbike was triggered by remote control as he was leaving his home on Tuesday morning.

"He was a Hezbollahi and pious university professor serving his people," Ahmadinejad said, using the term employed to indicate a person's dedication to the Islamic republic's regime.

"The enemies by killing the elite cannot take away the knowledge from the Iranian nation," the president added.

Iranian officials have accused the CIA and Mossad, the intelligence agencies respectively of the United States and Israel, of having a hand in the bombing.

Angry mourners chanting anti-American and anti-Israeli slogans buried the professor at a shrine in northern Tehran on Thursday.
