During its simultaneous translation of a presidential news conference on 14 January, CNN quoted Ahmadinejad as saying: "The use of nuclear weapons is Iran's right."

CNN apologized for the error. But the Iranian authorities accuse the broadcaster of deliberately mistranslating Ahmadinejad's statement.
