Iran rejects Ahmadinejad attack report

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.

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.

"This morning a hand grenade exploded next to a vehicle carrying reporters accompanying the president in Hamedan," Iranian website Khabaronline reported.

"Ahmadinejad's car was 100 metres (yards) away and he was not hurt."

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

An informed source in Iran's presidential office has rejected as false the reports of grenade attack on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
