Selected Iranian Expatriate Killings and Attempted Killings, 1979-2010
In “Appendix 1,” we document attempted killings that meet the following criteria: (1) The attempt was made against one or more Iranians. (2) The attempt took place outside of Iran. (3) Some allegation was made that the state of Iran was at least partially responsible for the attempt.
We are far from the first to document allegedly Iran-sponsored attempts to kill Iranian expatriates. However, we attempt to fill a gap in the literature by combining breadth, detail, and a thorough citation of sources consulted.
Our survey begins with the 1979 assassination of Shahriar Shafigh in Paris and continues up to the 2012 murder of Gelareh Bagherzadeh in Houston. Although we have tried to be thorough, this appendix is not exhaustive.
