Ahmadinejad's health rumored to be deteriorating

The health of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is deteriorating, according to reports in the Islamic Republic.

The reports come after Ahmadinejad, 52, canceled a series of public appearances, including two speeches and a cabinet meeting.

A top aide to Ahmadinejad, Amir Mansour Borghei, told journalists the president was "indisposed".

Iranian news Web site Shahab said doctors had advised the president to reduce his workload if he wanted to avoid illness, quoting "sources close to the government."

The Web site indicated that the president had pulled out of the engagements due to fatigue caused by low blood pressure.

However, other sources in Teheran speculated that the opposition was spreading rumors about Ahmadinejad's health in order to garner support for next year's elections.
