An unidentified official in President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s office denied reports that there had been a grenade attack on the Iranian leader today, according to state-run Press TV’s website.

Among the reports was one by the Iranian newspaper Khabar, which said on its website that a minibus carrying journalists accompanying Ahmadinejad on a visit to the western city of Hamadan was hit by a grenade. The president was uninjured and the attacker was arrested, according to the newspaper.

The report was removed from the Khabar website after it was denied by the official in Ahmadinejad’s office. State television showed the president speaking live in Hamadan, 340 kilometers (210 miles) from Tehran, after Khabar reported an attack.

Ahmadinejad said this week that “stupid Zionists” had plans to assassinate him.

Calls seeking comment on the reports from the spokesman for the Foreign Ministry weren’t answered.

Ahmadinejad’s re-election to a second term in June 2009 prompted allegations of vote-rigging and sparked the largest opposition protests in the country since the 1979 revolution that brought Shiite Muslim clerics to power. He has denied the allegations.
