Political protest brings sudden end to Rohani's first press conference

Text size Aa Aa

Hassan Rohani’s first press conference ended abruptly when a man in the audience sprang up and shouted a slogan in support of a jailed politician.

Mirhossein Mousavi has been held under house arrest since 2011 and when questioned about his fate, Rohani did not answer and shortly afterwards left the stage as the protester was bundled away by security guards.
