Iranian scientist still missing after June pilgrimage

An Iranian scientist remains missing after a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in June. Iran is blaming the American and Saudi governments for the disappearance of Dr. Shahram Amiri, who is suspected to have worked in Iran’s nuclear program.

According to Iran’s state-run Press TV, Amiri worked as a researcher at Tehran’s Malek Ashtar University.

Many in Iran assume that Amiri defected, but the U.S. denies any involvement.
