While U.S. and Israeli delegations skipped Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at the United Nations on Wednesday, British officials did attend, and while they were instructed to leave by Prime Minister David Cameron if anything offensive was said by Ahmadinejad, the 3-person British team chose not to leave.

During his speech, the Iranian leader referred to Israelis as “uncivilized Zionists” and questioned the killing of Osama Bin Laden, saying that “an independent fact-finding team” should have been established to bring him to justice.

Cameron and British Foreign Minister William Hague were in New York while Ahmadinejad took the podium at the UN, however they did not attend the speech.
