Iran says nuclear inspector killed in car crash

A U.N. nuclear inspector from South Korea was killed Tuesday in a car accident in Iran, state-run media reported.

Ok-Seok Seo was traveling with another inspector from the International Atomic Energy Agency near the Khandab nuclear complex in central Markazi province when their vehicle overturned, state news agencies said, citing Iran's Atomic Energy Organization.

The IAEA has not commented on the report.

    Hi, folks.

    It seems there have been a rash of mishaps involving people in the nuclear industry and car accidents in Iran.
    Things that make you go "Hmmmm".

    As it keeps happening in Iran, and they don't want to let the inspectors actually inspect, well....I cannot believe every inspector cannot drive very well....

    The first thing that came to my mind after reading the summary was "The South Korean was probably eating those human-flesh pills".

    Can anyone prove me wrong? What if they killed him after hearing about those pills in the news? Anyone?

    Whats really strange is one of the hero s of persia (iran) was cyrus. one can read chronicles2 and read how he states the jews belong in israel and he even helped rebuild the first temple but was later sadly killed.... i talk to young iranians and they do not hate america or israel...america started a problem after we installed the corrupt shah and later let him live in virginia just like marcos of the phillipines.... iran used to be our friend and we should try to talk to the youth to try to overthrow current evil leaders....its not the people of iran or china or china....its the current government.... even considering this the world cannot allow them to build such weapons. shalom
