Britain and France led a call Monday for an international probe into the violence that followed last year's disputed presidential election in Iran.

The demand, which Iran swiftly rejected, came during the UN Human Rights Council's first review of Iran's rights record since the organization was founded in 2006.

Iran should invite UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to "investigate the post election violence and independently assess the human rights situation," Britain's ambassador in Geneva, Peter Gooderham, said during a three-hour UN debate.

Opposition groups claim the vote that returned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power was fraudulent.
