Unknown Iranian nuclear scientist Darioush Rezaie killed in Tehran

You may think that there is a bug in the logic of that headline: how can a man be both named and declared unknown in the same sentence? Well, it's a paraphrase of an old joke I wouldn't go into right now, but it's still not exactly a mistake, you see:

Gov't minister says unclear whether Darioush Rezaie, a university teacher, was a nuclear scientist...
So, let's concentrate on what is known so far:
An Iranian physicist was shot dead by a motorcyclist in Tehran on Saturday and Iran's student news agency ISNA quoted an unnamed police official as saying he was a nuclear scientist.
Looks like a trend:
Last year, an Iranian scientist was killed and another was wounded in Tehran.
Or like a plague... guess who will be blamed?

I daresay that Mossad will get the blame whatever the cause
