CNN misquotes Iran's president by translating 'nuclear energy' into 'nuclear weapons'

''CNN's simultaneous translation of Ahmadinejad's lengthy news conference on Saturday included the phrase "the use of nuclear weapons is Iran's right". In fact, what the Iranian president said was that "Iran has the right to nuclear energy", the official IRNA news agency reported. CNN later apologised for its mistake. Iran denies any intention of seeking nuclear weapons, saying it wants atomic technology merely for the generation of electricity. ''
