Ahmadinejad Calls Netanyahu's UN Bomb Prop 'Childish'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has given his review of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cartoon-style visual aid at the United Nations, calling the bomb drawing "childish and primitive."

Ahmadinejad says it was an intellectual insult to the U.N. dignitaries last week when Netanyahu used a marker to draw a "red line" to represent the threshold for international action to halt Iran's nuclear program.

Israel and the U.S. accuse Iran of seeking nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies. Netanyahu's prop was quickly dubbed "Bibi's bomb" after his nickname.

Ahmadinejad joked at a news conference Tuesday that Netanyahu's artwork will improve with practice.
