The UN Security Council has wrapped up a special session demanded by the Trump administration on the recent protests in Iran - with the US accusing Tehran of stifling the voices of its people.
But other members objected to the meeting, insisting the Council wasn't empowered to discuss the internal affairs of a UN member state.
But, with the support of the UK among others, the US got its wish and the debate went ahead as planned.
Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports from the United Nations.
