While the debate continues over how to deal with an Iran that has nuclear ambitions, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has other things on his mind. "I would like to be next to our young athletes at the 2012 Olympics but the host has a problem with this," Ahmadinejad said of 2012 Olympics in London, according to the Associated Press.
The official Iranian news agency, IRNA, reports:
In 2011, Iranian protesters stormed the British embassy in Tehran. "Militant students are reported to have ransacked offices, burned the British flag and smashed embassy windows," the BBC reported at the time. "The move comes after Iran resolved to reduce ties following the UK's decision to impose further sanctions on it."
