TEHRAN - Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei welcomed in Iran's New Year on Monday but said Iranians' thoughts were with anti-government protesters in Muslim countries who were being violently repressed.

"We hope that God almighty will immediately relieve the Bahraini nation, the Yemeni nation, and the Libyan nation, and punish the enemies of the nations with his torment," Khamenei said in a televised address.

"What is happening to the people in these countries does not allow one to feel the full extent of the joyfulness of the (New Year) feast," he said.
