Last week, The New York Times reported that Israeli agents, at the behest of the US, had assassinated al Qaeda's number two on the streets of Tehran. Abu Muhammad al-Masri was gunned down along with his daughter, Miriam. She was also reportedly a target, as she was being groomed for a leadership role in al Qaeda. Iran has vehemently denied these reports. To shed some light on this story, we talk to Ronen Bergman.
