Gunmen ambushed the motorcade of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, leaving his driver and a bodyguard dead, but not harming the hard-line leader who was not in the car at the time, according to WorldNetDaily.com. "At 6:50 p.m. on Thursday, the lead car in the presidential motorcade confronted armed bandits and trouble-makers on the Zabol-Saravan highway," the semi-official Jomhouri Islami reported today. "In the ensuing armed clash, the driver of the vehicle, who was an indigenous member of the security services, and one of the president's bodyguards died, while another bodyguard was wounded." Tehran often uses "bandits" and "trouble-makers" to identify its political opponents.
