Was Ahmadinejad's Motorcade Attacked?

There are conflicting reports about an alleged grenade attack on Mahmud Ahmadinejad's motorcade in Hamadan, with Al-Arabiya and other reports claiming it was a grenade, and Iranian official media, after some confusion, saying it was only a firecracker. Interesting, though I doubt if we'll hear much more.

We'll have to wait for the reaction by the authorities ie no reaction=firecracker/crackdown=assassination attempt.
