The situation has sparked tensions between Iran and Israel, raising World War 3 concerns. Sky News’ Defence correspondent Alistair Bunkall explained why the man had been classified as a “name to remember”.

He said: “I was speaking to a western security source in the last half and hour and they say that if this turns out to be true then this will be a really big deal.

“This man is the best known, the most prominent nuclear scientist in Iran.

“He was the only one personally named in a report into the Iranian nuclear programme.

“He was singled out in 2018 by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, as being ‘a name to remember’.”

Mr Bunkall continued: “He said that ‘this is a name you should remember as a man who was connected with Iran’s attempts to try and develop a nuclear weapon’.

“The assassination took place just outside Tehran, up into the hills where a lot of wealthy Iranians have villas.

“He was in a car with his bodyguards. Witnesses heard an explosion and then there was gunfire.

“He was taken to hospital but they were unable to save his life.”
