The families of five slain Iranian nuclear scientists have filed a lawsuit against Israel, the US and Britain. They’ve accused them of involvement in the assassination of their loved ones.

Rahim Ahmadi Roshan, the father of one of the killed scientists, has told a press conference in Tehran that the families have demanded Iran’s judiciary to pursue their complaint through international bodies and bring those behind the murders to justice.

Iranian state television broadcast purported confessions earlier this month by 14 suspects in connection with the killing of the five scientists since 2010. Iran says the attacks are part of a covert campaign by Israel and the West to sabotage its nuclear program. The US and Britain have denied involvement in the assasinations while Israel has not commented.
