Shoe thrown at Iran President's car as he returns home after Obama call
TEHERAN (AFP) - A shoe was thrown towards Iranian President Hassan Rohani's car on Saturday as he arrived home to a mixed reception for his historic call with United States President Barack Obama, an AFP correspondent reported.
Some 60 hardline Islamists chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" as Mr Rohani's motorcade drew out of Teheran's Mehrabad Airport.
But they were outnumbered by 200 to 300 supporters of the President who shouted: "Thank you Rouhani."
A small police contingent separated the rival demonstrators.
