Obama says 'appalled and outraged' on Iran

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Tuesday said he has been “appalled and outraged” by the threats, beatings and imprisonments against demonstrators in Iran.

“I strongly condemn these unjust actions, and I join with the American people in mourning each and every innocent life that is lost,” Obama said at a news conference.

He called accusations that U.S. was instigating massive protests “patently false and absurd.”
