The Iranian government has denied that Ahmadinejad had been attacked, but other sources have confirmed it. Press TV, an official English language channel, quoted a source close to the president’s office who denied the attack. Another source told France Presse that the grenade thrown at the president’s motorcade was in reality a ‘firework’. Earlier presidential sources had confirmed the attack to al Arabiya and Reuters.
