U.S. denies killing Iran scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi
The US State Department described the accusation as "absurd".
Physicist Massoud Ali Mohammadi died in a bomb blast on Tuesday, Iranian media reported, describing him as a nuclear scientist and a government supporter.
But later reports suggested he was not involved in Iran's nuclear programme and had signed an opposition petition.
Mr Ali Mohammadi, 50, was killed by a remote-controlled bomb near his home.
