Iran’s Rouhani accuses ‘mercenary’ Israel of scientist assassination: Statement

TEHRAN: Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday accused arch-foe Israel of acting as a “mercenary” for the US in carrying out the assassination of Tehran’s top nuclear scientist the day before.
“Once again, the wicked hands of the global arrogance, with the usurper Zionist regime as the mercenary, were stained with the blood of a son of this nation,” Rouhani said in a statement on his official website, referring to the killing of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
Iran generally uses the term “global arrogance” to refer to the United States.
