Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has cut short his planned attendance at the upcoming UN General Assembly by a day-and-a-half to avoid sitting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. According to Channel 10, Netanyahu "doesn't want to be in the same room as a Holocaust denier who calls for the destruction of Israel." The 64th Session of the General Assembly opens on September 15.
