Iran said it will attend the 2012 Olympics in London despite its protest of the Games' logo, which it says spells the word Zion. Bahram Afsharzadeh, the secretary general of Iran's National Olympic Committee, on Sunday told Iran's Press-TV that "we will participate and play gloriously in the London games." His comments came after British Prime Minister David Cameron told the British community weekly Jewish News over the weekend that Iran is "completely paranoid" over the logo.
