Iranian Deputy Minister Killed

An assassin shot and killed Iran's deputy industry minister on Sunday in Tehran, according to the country's state news agency. Police believe someone traveling with Safdar Rahmat Abadi shot the well-known government figure twice in the head and chest as he was getting into his car. The attacker is still unidentified and no group has claimed responsibility. It's been a bloody week in Iran—on Wednesday, a gunman killed an Iranian state prosecutor in a region near the Pakistani border.
