    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been in the spotlight since his arrival in the United States for the United Nations Millennium Development Goals summit.

    However as he addressed the UN General Assembly, it is not what he said that attracted attention but what happened during the simultaneous translation of his speech.
