Iranian President causes walk-out in General Assembly

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran

Diplomats from the United States have staged a walk-out from the UN General Assembly in protest at a speech by the Iranian President.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the US had used the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York 10 years ago as a pretext to attack both Iraq and Afghanistan.
