Iranian scientist leaves for home

Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist, is on his way home from the US after surfacing in Washington more than a year after Tehran claimed he was abducted by US spies. 

Ramin Mehmanparast, an Iranian foreign ministry spokesman, said that Amiri had on Wednesday left from the Pakistan embassy in Washington, where he said he sought refuge, and was sent off by Mostafa Rahmani, the head of the Iran interests section.


"Shahram Amiri left US soil ... for Iran following efforts taken by the Islamic Republic of Iran and the effective cooperation of the Pakistani," Mehmanparast said.
