President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the US and its allies will fail to provoke ethnic differences in Iran, a day after Iran closed a state-owned newspaper and detained its chief editor and cartoonist for publishing a cartoon that sparked riots by ethnic Azeris in northwestern Iran. "They (the US and its allies) must know that they will not be able to provoke divisions and differences, through desperate attempts, among the dear Iranian nation," Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state-run television Wednesday. Iran closed a state-owned newspaper and detained its chief editor and cartoonist on Tuesday for publishing a cartoon that sparked riots by ethnic Azeris, a sign of the hard-line government's concern over any sign of divisions amid its confrontation with the United States.
