Crowds protest ahead of Ahmadinejad’s arrival in US

September 22, 2012 16:40

Dozens of demonstrators on Saturday gathered outside New York's upscale Warwick hotel to protest the pending arrival of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the New York Post reported.

According to the paper, the crowd chanted “Keep Ahmadinejad out of New York!", while others held anti-Iranian-regime signs outside the Manhattan hotel.

The Holocaust-denying Ahmadinejad, who claims the US government orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, is expected to be in New York until at least Wednesday, when he is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly.
