TEHRAN (Reuters) -- Iran's president has accused Israel of "brutal acts" and "ethnic cleansing" against the Palestinians, two days after his denunciation of the Jewish state as racist prompted a walkout from a UN conference on racism.

Mahmud Ahmadinejad told a conference in Tehran on Israel's "genocide" in Gaza that Israeli "criminals" should be brought to justice.

"[They] must be held accountable for all their brutality," Ahmadinejad told the meeting of prosecutors from Islamic countries in a speech broadcast live on state television. His comments were translated by Iran's English-language Press TV.
