Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has returned to Tehran after attending the UN's General Assembly session in New York.

Ahmadinejad traded heated remarks over the subject of the September 11th attacks, suggesting a fact-finding panel be created to look into who was behind them.

He also made verbal threats to destroy Israel during the meeting. He also claims he would "consider" a halt to uranium enrichment if an outside source would provide the 20-percent enriched fuel for Iran's medical research reactor.

US President Barack Obama accused Ahmadinejad of making "offensive" and "hateful" comments. Obama also criticized the Iranian government for hurting its people by incurring severe financial and trade sanctions.
