CAIRO (Reuters) - Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani condemned the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in a phone call on Saturday with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Jawad Zarif, a ministry statement said.

Al-Thani extended Qatar's condolences to the government and the people of Iran and called for self-restraint following Friday's killing, which Iran's president has blamed on Israel, the statement said.
