The cables relate how an FDP insider – “a fly on the wall, a young, up-and-coming party loyalist who was taking notes during the marathon talks” – delivered documents to the US embassy and kept US diplomats informed on the new government formation in October last year.

On Monday Westerwelle dismissed the reports as false and insisted there was no mole. But Helmut Metzner, his chief of staff, was sacked after admitting he was the source of the US intelligence.

“The staff member of the FDP’s federal headquarters, who has admitted his contacts with the US embassy in Berlin, has been relieved of his duties as chief of staff for the FDP chairman,” said a party statement.

At least two other Iranian nuclear scientists have been killed in recent years, one of them in an attack similar to Monday’s.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a press conference that “undoubtedly, the hand of the Zionist regime and Western governments is involved in the assassination.”

He was criticising the media’s use of secret sources and what he sees as a willingness to report on political scandals without proper verification:

“You’re a paedophile, I’m deeply convinced of it, I’ve seen the secret services but I won’t say which ones, I saw someone but I won’t say who it is, and it was verbal. But I’m deeply convinced you’re a paedophile!”
