Another Take: Why was Iran’s top nuclear scientist assassinated?

View descriptionShare

Every Saturday, we revisit a story from the archives. This originally aired on December 7, 2020. None of the dates, titles, or other references from that time have been changed. 

Many Iranians had no idea who Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was when he was assassinated at the end of November 2020. But intelligence services in Israel and the United States had been tracking Iran’s top nuclear scientist for years.

So what happened that day, and what will it mean for Iran? We are exploring Fakhrizadeh’s story and the future of US-Iran relations.
