Ahmadinejad jokes over death threats to Salman Rushdie

When Ahmadinejad was asked whether he considers Rushdie still under a death sentence, he grinned and replied: “Where is he now? Where is he, there is no news of him?”

Adopting a joking tone, he continued: “Is he here in the United States? You shouldn’t broadcast that. If he is in the United States, you shouldn’t broadcast it for his own safety.”
