The United Nations says it has expelled a "large number" of members of a Jewish student group from a global racism conference after some of them disrupted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Spokeswoman Marie Heuze says the UN acted in response to Monday's disturbance by rainbow-wigged protesters, who shouted insults and threw small red clowns' noses at Ahmadinejad. Members of the European Union of Jewish Students also attempted to block the Iranian leader's appearance at a news conference. Heuze said Tuesday the students "have no chance of returning."
