7. Iran nuclear expert buried as Russia warns on sanctions
The funeral of a nuclear scientist killed in a targeted car bomb attack is taking place in Tehran.

Thousands are attending Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan's funeral, state TV reports.

His death has further stoked tensions between Iran and the US and its allies who fear Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons.

Russia has warned that new sanctions and any military action against Iran over its nuclear programme would be seen as regime change.

Iran has blamed the US and Israel for the killing of the 32-year-old scientist, allegations they deny.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has vowed to punish those behind the death of Mr Ahmadi-Roshan, who worked at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.
