Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will attend next week's UN anti-racism conference, dubbed Durban II, according to state news agency IRNA. IRNA said that the first such conference, which was held in Durban, South Africa, "strongly condemned the racist policies of the Zionist regime." The United States, Israel, Canada and Italy have all said that they will boycott the conference, as its 'anti- racism' document contains language singling out Israel and perceived as anti-Semitic.
