NEW YORK— As Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly, dozens of protesters demonstrated against his regime.

The protesters, who set up near Central Park on Sunday, wore tape across their mouths to demonstrate what they consider to be the oppressive nature of the Iranian government. The nonprofit Israeli education group, Stand With Us, organized the rally.

Protester Sahand Khoshbaten, a spokesman for the No To Ahmadinejad Committee, said his group supports democratic regime change in Iran.

The protest was one of many expected in the week ahead, including another scheduled for Thursday across from the UN.
