Iran's Ahmadinejad survives 'assassination attempt'

HUGE news this AM...someone just tried to kill Ahmadinejad.

BBC

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has survived an attack on his convoy in western Iran, media reports from the region say.

The reports say a device was thrown at the convoy in the city of Hamedan, where he was to deliver a speech.

Mr Ahmadinejad was unhurt and went ahead with the speech to a rally at a football stadium, which was broadcast live on state TV.

However, Iran's state-owned Press TV has denied the attack.

Arab TV reports said a number of people were wounded in the attack.

Dubai-based Al Arabiya television said the attacker hit a car carrying journalists. The attacker was detained, it added.

To the group behind this.....keep on trying......:-)
