Iranian state TV is denying allegations an assassination attempt against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took place while he rode in a motorcade.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad appeared to be unhurt, speaking with animation, during a speech in Hamedan, despite reports there had been an earlier attack against him.
Al Arabiya TV reported someone had thrown a homemade explosive device at Mr. Ahmadinejad’s motorcade and a vehicle carrying journalists had been hit. It also said a source close to the president confirmed the attack.
