Iran's president-elect calls Israel a "wound" on Muslim world

DUBAI (REUTERS) - Iran's president-elect, cleric Hassan Rohani, on Friday called Israel a "wound" that must be removed, Iranian media reported, two days ahead of his inauguration.

"The Zionist regime is a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed," Iran's student news agency quoted Rohani as saying at the annual Qods Day rally in support of Palestinian rights.
