London: The families of Iranian nuclear scientists, who were killed in 2010, have filed a lawsuit against Israel, the US and the UK, accusing them of involvement in assassinations.

Rahim Ahmadi Roshan, father of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, the slain chemistry expert and a director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility in central Iran, said the families are demanding those behind the killings should be brought to justice.

“We`ve filed an indictment against the Zionist regime and the arrogant powers. (The judiciary) is to pursue this case with the relevant international bodies,” The Daily Mail quoted Rahim, as saying.

Iran`s state television had earlier broadcast the purported confessions of 14 suspects held in connection with the killing of five nuclear scientists since 2010.

The television also showed pictures from a military garrison, said to be a training camp outside Tel Aviv in Israel.

Iran has claimed that the attacks are part of a covert campaign by Israel and the West to sabotage its nuclear programme.

According to the paper, the country has also blamed Israel`s Mossad, as well as the CIA and Britain`s MI6 for the assassinations, with support from some of Iran`s neighbors.
