ARLINGTON, Virginia (AFP) – Former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami has condemned the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States and said those who carried them out will never go to heaven.

“We, Muslims, should condemn this atrocity even more strongly,” Khatami told the Council on American-Islamic Relations. (
