Ottawa Citizen - - WORLD -

An Ira­nian gen­eral killed in a mas­sive ex­plo­sion at a mu­ni­tions base out­side the cap­i­tal Nov. 12 was work­ing on an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal mis­sile, his brother told a gov­ern­men­trun news­pa­per. Gen. Has­san Tehrani Mo­qad­dam died while work­ing on a “project re­lated to in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­siles,” said Mo­ham­mad Tehrani Mo­qad­dam, a Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards com­man­der. He was quoted as say­ing that his brother’s mis­sile project “was in its fi­nal phase” and was “com­pletely hi-tech and se­cret.” He said he be­lieved the project would still be suc­cess­fully com­pleted.
