A hard-line Iranian newspaper with links to the country's top authority called on the clerical establishment yesterday to fight back against Israel for the killing of a nuclear scientist in Tehran.

Iran blamed its arch-enemies, Israel and the United States, for a blast which killed the man in his car on Wednesday.

"We should retaliate against Israel for the martyring of our young scientist," wrote Hossein Shariatmadari, the editor-in-chief of the Kayhan newspaper.
