Iran slams UN human rights report; attacks US, Britain

UNITED NATIONS - An Iranian official on Wednesday slammed a report by a UN investigator that said human rights abuses in Iran appear to be increasing and blamed the United States and Europe for the negative assessment of Tehran.
The UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, Ahmed Shaheed of the Maldives, also said in his report to the UN General Assembly published earlier this week that the Iranian government had not allowed him to visit Iran while making his assessment.Iran's Deputy UN Ambassador Eshagh al-Habib rejected the report's findings, saying the assembly's decision to appoint a special rapporteur in the first place was the "result of a one-sided approach and political ambition of certain countries in particularly the United State and its Europeans allies."
