It exploded near the Sharif technological university in northern Tehran.The pair made their escape.

The war with Iran has already begun - It might not seem like it, but the West has already launched its campaign to prevent Iran building an atom bomb. This is not a conventional war of the type we have recently experienced in Iraq and Afghanistan. On the contrary, rather than using thousands of troops and state-of-the-art weaponry to achieve our goals, the West is now waging a sophisticated campaign where it relies on its wits and ingenuity rather than brute force.
Russia warns West against attack on Iran - A senior Russian diplomat has strongly warned the West against an attack on Iran, saying that it would upset global security.

Iran, West approaching 'turning point' in 2012, officials warn - War games. Threats to close a key oil passageway and block a U.S. aircraft carrier from returning to the Persian Gulf. An American sentenced to death in Tehran, accused of spying. And now a breakthrough in Iran's nuclear program.
