Ahmadinejad lost in translation

Iran's president takes centre-stage at the United Nations but his attack on the "unjust" West failed to be heard.

    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.

    Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari explains what the controversy is all about.
