Report: Iran's Ahmadinejad cancels Libya visit

Iran's Fars news agency says that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not attend the African Union summit in Libya as was expected.
In a brief statement, the semiofficial news agency reported that the president's visit to Libya _ which was supposed to start Wednesday _ has been canceled. No reason was given.
The trip would have been one of Ahmadinejad's first since his disputed re-election earlier this month.
The opposition has claimed the election was a fraud, and Iran has been shaken by widespread protests challenging Ahmadinejad's victory.
The three-day heads of state AU summit opens Wednesday in the coastal city of Sirte, east of the capital, Tripoli.
