In a Twitter message on Saturday evening, Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Joe Biden's former rival in the Democratic primary reacted to the assassination of "Mohsen Fakhrizadeh", a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist.
“The assassination of Mohsen Fakhri Zadeh was reckless, provocative, and illegal”, he said.
“As a new administration takes power, it was clearly intended to undermine US-Iran diplomacy,” he claimed, adding, “We must not allow that to happen.”
“Diplomacy, not murder, is the best path forward,” he added.
A dozen gunmen attacked Iranian physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi in the city of Absard, Tehran suburbs on Friday. The attack involved at least one explosion and small fire by a number of assailants which seriously injured the Iranian scientist before he was taken to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
