An Iranian nuclear scientist who vanished more than a year ago mysteriously turned up in Washington yesterday saying he had been kidnapped but the United States denied that he was held against his will.


Iran, which is locked in a standoff with the West over its suspected pursuit of nuclear weapons, has repeatedly accused the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency of abducting Shahram Amiri, who worked for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.


Amiri, who went missing during a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia more than a year ago, appeared at the Iranian interests section of the Pakistani embassy, which represents Iran because Tehran and Washington have no diplomatic relations.
