TEHRAN — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad branded Sunday’s anti-government protests as a “nauseating play” staged by the United States and Israel, state news agency IRNA reported.

“Iranians have seen lots of these games. Americans and Zionists are the sole audience of a play they have commissioned and sold out,” he said on Tuesday in reaction to the protests, in which eight people were killed.

“A nauseating play is performed,” he said.
