Rouhani returns to Iran from UN

Iran's President, Hassan Rouhani, has returned home to throngs of supporters following his attendance at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. The crowds were largely made up of liberals who praised his efforts at diplomacy, as the President discussed issues including nuclear disarmament, and partook in a historic phone call with US President Barack Obama. However, some hard-liners voiced their opposition to Rouhani's efforts, chanting anti-American slogans and pelting the motorcade with eggs.
