TEHRAN - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on Britain on Wednesday to curb its "savage" treatment of rioters and the Libyan government of Muammar Gaddafi said Prime Minister David Cameron had lost legitimacy and should go.

Television pictures of riot police battling to quell unprecedented unrest in cities across Britain have led news schedules in countries that London accuses of human rights abuses, giving their leaders the chance to hit back."What kind of country treats its own people like this? The ugliest treatment is the police's unacceptable attack on the people, who have no weapons in hand," Ahmadinejad told reporters after a cabinet meeting in Tehran.
