Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Starts Own Blog

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has started his own blog, this is perhaps slightly ironic, given that the Iranian Government actively censors blogs on the Internet.

The launch of was reported on state TV, which urged users to send in messages to the president.

Mr Ahmadinejad's first posting, entitled autobiography, tells of his childhood, Iran's Islamic revolution, and the country's war with Iraq.

The blog includes a poll asking if users think the US and Israel are trying to trigger a new world war.

There is a postform for users to send in questions for the president, and a picture gallery containing a series of images of the blogger himself.

The move by Mr Ahmadinejad comes amid continuing internet censorship by the Iranian government.
