Ahmadinejad: Saudi claim of Iran backing Lebanon 'coup' made in anger

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Saudi foreign minister's claims of Iranian support for Hizbullah's recent actions in Lebanon were made in anger. Ahmadinejad said Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal was not following the orders of Saudi King Abdullah when he said Tuesday that Iran's support for Hizbullah's "coup" in Lebanon will affect Teheran's relations with Arab and Islamic countries. Ahmadinejad said Iran was the only country that does not interfere in Lebanon's internal affairs. Lebanon has suffered from almost a week of clashes between supporters of the Western-backed government and the Shi'ite Hizbullah opposition that have left at least 54 people dead and scores more wounded.
