Iran's parliament dismissed a cabinet minister on Tuesday over his fake degree from Oxford University, in a vote seen as a humiliating blow to hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Iranian leader has been at loggerheads with the assembly before, but the impeachment of Interior Minister Ali Kordan and his ouster Tuesday were the first high-profile confrontation between the president and the 290-member parliament, dominated by hard-liners. It was also a sign of Ahmadinejad's popularity tumbling more ahead of the crucial presidential balloting next June.
