US and France Walk Out of UN general assembly as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slammed the "arrogant cowards" who are leading the world.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stuck a familiarly anti-Western, incendiary tone in his speech to the UN general assembly Thursday, prompting several delegations to exit the room.

As part of a long series of rhetorical questions, he asked who used the "mysterious" events of September 11 as a pretext to attack Middle Eastern nations. In a swipe at the United States, he also slammed the "arrogant cowards" who are leading the world.

His remarks prompted several delegations, including the United States and France, to walk out of the chamber. Source
