    Opposition boycotts Ahmadinejad’s swearing-in

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been sworn-in for a second term of office as Iranian president. But, former presidents Ali Akhbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Ali Khatami were among the opposition leaders who boycotted the ceremony in Teheran. However, most western embassies sent representatives.

    In his address to the parliament in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said Iran must continue to resist oppressor nations. He also told Western leaders who had not congratulated him on his re-election that “no-one in Iran was waiting for them.”

    Outside the parliament building, riot police were out in force to prevent any opposition protests.
    The trial of about a hundred reformists who led demonstrations in the wake of the contested election is set to resume on Thursday.

    Ahmadinejad now has two weeks to present a cabinet for parliament’s approval. While he has the formal endorsement of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the President may have difficulty getting his team through the divided parliament, where he faces attacks from both the ultra-conservative and reformist flanks.

    A Saudi Arabian man who went on an Arabic television talk show to boast about his sex life has been arrested.

    The man, named as Mazen Abdul Jawad, prompted more than 200 complaints from Saudi viewers.

    He was arrested for "publicising vice", police said, after he spoke about his experiences and displayed sex toys and a sex guide at his home in Jeddah.

    Mr Abdul Jawad had publicly apologised, saying producers at the TV station had tricked him into some of his accounts.

    During the show on Lebanon's LBC, the father-of-four told how he first had sex with a neighbour when he was 14.

    He also described how he used the Bluetooth function on his mobile phone to pick up women in the kingdom.

    A police spokesman in Jeddah said Mr Abdul Jawad's appearance had violated Saudi Arabia's Islamic sharia law code and was against Saudi customs.

    He was detained at his apartment at the Red Sea port city before being fingerprinted and turned over to criminal investigators, according to media reports.
