Ahmadinejad survives attack on convoy in Iran (UPDATED)
EDITOR's NOTE: Iran rejects Ahmadinejad attack reports
(Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad survived an attack on his convoy in Iran on Wednesday, Lebanon's Future television quoted the Iranian presidency as saying.
Al Arabiya television said an attacker had thrown a bomb at Ahmadinejad's convoy before being detained. Both television reports said some people had been wounded in the attack.
Dubai-based Al Arabiya cited its own sources as saying the bomb had hit a car carrying journalists and presidential staff.
Ahmadinejad appeared on live Iranian television at a sports stadium in the western city of Hamadan. He was apparently well and made no mention of any attack.
At the same time speaking to Press TV, an informed source in Iran's presidential office has rejected as false the reports of grenade attack on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
