Conspiracy theorist alert!  Prepare your conspiracy theories now! I mean it couldn't just be an . . .  accident could it?  Does your inclination, if any, towards conspiracy theories depend on where the event happened?

Reports: Nuclear inspector killed in Iran car crash

Another inspector from Slovakia injured as car overturns near heavy water reactor being built in Khondab; no indications of foul play

A UN nuclear inspector from South Korea was killed Tuesday and a colleague was injured in a car crash near a reactor site in central Iran, news reports said.


There were no immediate indications of foul play. But the crash is likely to undergo intense scrutiny.

. . .
With some 26,000 casualties a year, Iran has one the highest per capital road deaths. It is blamed on disregard of traffic rules, lack of safety of the roads as well as inadequate emergency services.

Well.. it's happened before.

"Leaning out a hand, the motorcyclist attaches a magnetic explosive device – sometimes called a "sticky bomb" -- to the door nearest the man he is trying to kill and then speeds off. Seconds later, the bomb is detonated by remote-control. It is so sophisticated that only the target is killed. Those sitting next to him, or in front or behind him, escape with just cuts and bruises.


"He was the fifth Iranian nuclear scientist to be targeted in the past two years and the fourth to die. The only survivor was the biggest prize of all. In November 2010, Fereydoun Abbasi, now the head of Iran's atomic energy organisation was well trained enough to recognise what the clicking sound on the door of his car meant. He and his wife leapt clear just in time.


"A lot of western security experts will say that the Iranians have some justification in their suspicions, at least as far as Israel is concerned. Mossad is expert at carrying out assassinations abroad and Israel has most to lose from Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon".
