Ahmadinejad ends boycott

Iranian president criticised over absence from work and rift with minister.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ended an apparent boycott of his official duties by chairing his second cabinet meeting this week.

    While a rift with the intelligence minister seems to have ended, another confrontation appears to be developing.

    The president's actions are now the cause of much debate. While Ahmadinejad has made no comments about his 10 day absence from his job, it has given his critics reason to question his ability to govern.
