Hundreds have gathered in New York City to protest Iran President Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roo-HAH'-nee) during his remarks before the U.N. General Assembly.
Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said Thursday the United States should overthrow the Rouhani regime. Former U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle of South Dakota said human rights abuses have continued under Rouhani.
Former diplomat Bill Richardson and Robert F. Kennedy's daughter Kerry Kennedy also attended the protest.
Security was tight in the plaza outside the U.N. complex as chanting protesters gathered in the rain. Bad weather disrupted a link-up to a satellite address from an Iranian opposition leader.
On Thursday, Rouhani told the U.N. that a nuclear agreement is possible before the November deadline. He also warned world leaders that Islamic terrorists' goal is to destroy civilization.
