Iran's Ahmadinejad feted by crowd in southern Lebanon

On Thursday in an act described by Israel and the United States as provocative the President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited southern Lebanon, close to the border with Israel.

Thousands of Hezbollah supporters turned out to see him in Bint Jbeil, the town Iran helped to rebuild after the 2006 war.

Israel says it is proof Lebanon is now an Iranian protectorate.
