Ayatollah on 'evil' UK government


Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has described the UK government as "evil".

The comments were part of a broader condemnation of the conduct of Western nations during Iran's disputed elections.

He made the accusation during an address to tens of thousands of worshippers in Tehran at Friday prayers, which was broadcast live by Iranian state TV and radio.
