At a memorial service for Ali Kordan, the disgraced politician who died just over a year ago, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his impeachment was a ploy by "imperialism".

0955 GMT: We Will Punish All of You. As we noted yesterday, this is part of the President's strategy to talk tough before sitting down for nuclear talks with the "West", but I have to think this is laying it on a bit thick....
Speaking in northern Iran on Tuesday, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad highlighted Monday's killing of one nuclear physicist and the wounding of another:
By God, if such an incident takes place one more time, we will bring each permanent member of the United Nations Security Council to trial.
If the terror attack against Iranian scientists is repeated once more, we will pursue all cases before the Islamic Revolution, [in addition to] 160,000 martyrs of the Sacred Defense [the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War] and 40,000 martyrs in different parts of the country.
They think by taking away our nuclear scientists or scientists, our nation's momentum towards progress will stop. This time too, they committed a mistake.
It is obvious that the United Nations is in cahoots with Zionists.
But Ahmadinejad ultimately tipped off the strategy in his rhetoric: "Is this how you want to start off the negotiations? Your conduct shows that your intent (in talks) is enmity."

0830 GMT: This morning Iranian authorities hung Shahla Jahed, who had spent more than eight years in prison for the murder of the wife of prominent football player Naser Mohammadkhani.
In recent weeks, Iranian and international activists had featured the case of Jahed, who was "temporarily married" --- a practice allowed in Iran --- to Mohammadkhani. In 2008, the head of Iran's judiciary, Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi, ordered a fresh investigation and did not sanction the execution, but there were no further developments.
Activists in Iran claim that Jahed was forced to confess to the stabbing.
