TEHRAN, Iran Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad survived an attack on his convoy on Wednesday, Lebanon's Future television quoted officials as saying.
Al Arabiya television said an attacker had thrown a bomb at Ahmadinejad's convoy before being detained. Both television reports said some people had been wounded in the attack.
A conservative website said a it was a handmade grenade that exploded near the motorcade.
The website, khabaronline.ir, says the blast took place in Hamedan as Ahmadinejad was about to address a crowd.
It said the president was unhurt, and continued on to make a planned speech which was broadcast live on state TV.
