AFP: US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stepped up Washington’s verbal assault on Iran on Thursday, saying the hardline Islamic regime’s treatment of its people was “something to be loathed”. “I don’t think anybody thinks that the unelected mullahs who run that regime are a good thing for either the Iranian people or for the region,” Rice told reporters accompanying her to Europe and the Middle East.

LONDON – US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stepped up Washington’s verbal assault on Iran on Thursday, saying the hardline Islamic regime’s treatment of its people was “something to be loathed”.

“I don’t think anybody thinks that the unelected mullahs who run that regime are a good thing for either the Iranian people or for the region,” Rice told reporters accompanying her to Europe and the Middle East.

“I think our European allies agree that the Iranian regime’s human rights behaviour and its behaviour towards its own population is something to be loathed,” she said.

Rice arrived in London on Thursday evening on the first leg of a tour of Europe and the Middle East, her first trip abroad as chief US diplomat.
