Journalist Christian Amanpour said on Thursday that an interview with Iranian President Ebrahim had been canceled because he insisted she wear a headscarf that is the focus of major protests in the cleric-run state. According to CNN’s chief international journalist, she was preparing for an interview on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday after a colleague insisted she cover her hair.
