Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Why I won't be going to the London Olympics

Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has said he would like to come to the London Olympics but will not be attending because Britain has "a problem" with him.

His decision to stay away highlights a dilemma for the British government, which faces an unprecedented influx of leaders from unsavoury regimes for the opening ceremony on 27 July.

Does he know something the rest of them don't? If you find any other names of heads of state attending the Opening Ceremony, please add their names in the comments section.
