Iran claims CNN fabricated Rouhani's Holocaust remarks

Iranian State News Agency FNA is claiming that CNN fabricated President Hassan Rouhani's remarks about the Holocaust made during an interview with Christiane Amanpour, which aired Tuesday evening.

"CNN aired its interview with Rouhani on Tuesday but the news channel added to or changed parts of his remarks when Christiane Amanpour asked him about the Holocaust," the agency claims in a post, giving their transcription of Rouahni's remarks.

The agency says CNN added a whole section to Rouhani's remarks, including comments about "criminality against Jews" and about Jews taking land because of what the Nazis did in the past.

CNN declined to comment on Wednesday afternoon.
