MI6 use migrant crisis to smuggle Iran nuclear scientist into Britain
Marco Giannangeli, DIPLOMATIC EDITOR, Exclusive

BRITISH spies used the Channel migrant crisis as cover to smuggle a defecting Iranian nuclear scientist to safety, sources claim.

PUBLISHED: 16:10, Sun, Feb 10, 2019  | UPDATED: 17:04, Sun, Feb 10, 2019

The 47-year-old nuclear technician, with information about Iran's nuclear programme, was brought to the UK on New Year's Eve in a joint operation involving MI6, the CIA and Mossad. It involved a 3,000-mile dash across Europe and a final 22-mile dinghy crossing across the Channel hidden among illegal Iranian immigrants. An Israeli asset for years, he is said to have helped plan the 2012 assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a nuclear scientist and director at Iran's Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

The 32-year-old was killed by a magnetic bomb attached to his car in Tehran. His driver also died.
