An explosion went off today only 100 yards from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's motorcade. He was not injured in the blast.
According to Ahmadinejad, "Stupid Zionists have hired mercenaries to assassinate me."
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was on his way to give a speech in Hamedan, south of the Iranian capital, when the explosion near his motorcade took place. He later gave the speech and was obviously not harmed.
