Iran’s Ahmadinejad survives ‘assassination attempt’

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.
