Iran marks Ayatollah Khomeini anniversary

Breaking News

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, has strongly criticised the US as Iran marks 20 years since the death of the founder of the Islamic republic.

He said the US remained "deeply hated" in the region and "beautiful and sweet" words would not change that.

He told the huge crowd at the mausoleum of his predecessor, Ayatollah Khomenei, that action was needed not words.

He also demanded calmer exchanges between presidential candidates after a fiery televised debate on Wednesday.
