Khamenei Appears in Public amid Health Rumors

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made his first public appearance since mid-February amid reports by some foreign media that his prostate cancer has reached an advanced stage, metastasizing to other sites in the body, and he was in critical condition. Today, addressing a group of environmental officials in Tehran, Khamenei appeared to be comfortable and healthy on footage and photos released by his office. He underwent prostate surgery in September.
