Washington: An Iranian nuclear
scientist, who claimed that he was abducted by the US and took
refuge in the Iran`s office at the Pakistani Embassy here is
"free to go", an American official said on Tuesday.

"He (the Iranian nuclear scientist) has been here on
his free will and is obviously free to go," said the State
Department spokesman, P J Crowley.

The Iranian nuclear scientist, Shahram Amiri, today
surfaced at the Iranian intersection at the Pakistani Embassy
