Ahmadinejad makes controversial Lebanon visit

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been addressing a huge rally of Lebanese Shia in a stadium in southern Lebanon - in a town regarded as Hezbollah's main stronghold in the region.

The town of Bint Jbeil is just a few kilometres from the Israeli border. Hezbollah has organised the rally as way of thanking Iran for the financial aid it provided to help reconstruction in the area after the war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006.

Wyre Davies reports from Bint Jbeil.
