Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday labelled George W Bush a warmonger who should be dragged before a "people's tribunal".

Ahmedinejad's comments came a day after the US president called for a "free and democratic Iran".

"God willing, in the near future we will judge you in a people's tribunal," Ahmadinejad said in a speech carried live on state television.

"You who support the Zionist puppet regime, you who support the destruction of Palestinian homes, you have no right to talk about liberty or human rights," Ahmadinejad said.

In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, Bush called the Islamic republic "a nation now held hostage by a small clerical elite that is isolating and repressing its people".

But responding to Bush's speech, Ahmadinejad lashed out at "those who are up to their elbows in the blood of the people, who are implicated everywhere where there is war and oppression, who start wars in Asia and Africa, killing people by the million.
