With 120 leaders in New York for The United Nations General Assembly this week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s arrival is causing a stir.

We caught up with protesters — including Nathan Carleton, Communications Director for United Against Nuclear Iran — outside the hotel as Ahmadinejad arrived.
