Nuclear scientist found in U.S., claims to be kidnapped

A missing Iranian nuclear scientist, who Tehran claims was abducted by the U.S., has taken refuge at the Pakistani embassy in Washington and is asking to return to his homeland, Iran said Tuesday.

Iran has repeatedly claimed that the U.S. abducted Amiri — charges the Americans deny. U.S. media reported in March that the 32-year-old scientist had defected to the U.S. and was assisting the CIA in efforts to undermine Iran’s disputed nuclear program.

Adding to the confusion, Amiri himself appeared in a series of videos giving conflicting messages, including one where he claimed he was abducted by American and Saudi agents and taken to the U.S. and another saying he was freely studying in the United States.
