Iran: 100 Ahmadinejad supporters throw shoes at house speaker

Iran's parliament speaker Ali Larijani, who is embroiled in a public political feud with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had to cut short a public speech on Sunday when a crowd of about 100 Ahmadinejad supporters began throwing shoes and matchbox-sized clay tablets towards him.


His feud with Ahmadinejad burst into the open last week when the president used a speech in parliament to accuse Larijani's family of corruption - a charge the family denies. (Reuters)
