al-jazeera. where every. gibraltar police arrest the captain of the iranians supertankers seized by the british navy last week as the u.k. accused iran of trying to impeach a british oil tanker in the strait of hormuz. live from london also coming up. the philippine president is accused of inciting violence as a u.n. investigation best to look into his war on drugs. the french senate approves
3:49 am
attacks on tech giants potentially opening up a new front in the trade between washington and the e.u. . more than 20 countries signed a letter to the un condemning what's said to be china's mass detention a week of muslims. and it will begin in gibraltar where police have arrested the captain and chief officer of an iranian tanker that was seized by british marines last week it was stopped on suspicion of breaking e.u. sanctions fight. taking oil to syria new developments follow u.k. allegations that iranian vessels tried to impede a british oil tanker in the strait of hormuz leading to intervention by a british warship iran though denies any such confrontation took place the british foreign minister says the u.k. doesn't want to increase tensions in what is one of the world's most important oil
3:50 am
shipping channels well we're very concerned this is a very serious escalation of the situation and you know we are proud that they're all navy was that to protect their heritage but we are monitoring the situation very closely we don't want to escalate tensions we want tensions to come down. shows that joins me here in the studio sure how is the u.k. responded to. well although the u.k. is trying to say that this is not sort of major incidents and it does want to keep the tensions minimal it is also taking precautions by raising the security level of ships that are under the british flag in the gulf area in the gulf waters so they've raised those security levels to number 3 which is the highest level that doesn't mean that they're going to be shadowing or accompanying every commercial british ship in the area with
3:51 am
a royal naval. vessel to track them but it does mean that they are going to have to take extra precautions there's going to be regulations were to do with embarkation and disembarkation things like that and that threat level is going to be at number 3 for as long as the british government feels that there is an imminent threat from iran and what about the united states how they reacted while the u.s. says. the pentagon is staying quite quiet about this it has obviously tweeted about it made reference to it but it says that this is a matter for the british. what the context of this is that the united states has be lobbying for an international naval response force essentially in the gulf area to protect global shipping that's going through the gulf and the straits of hormuz and the u.s. clearly feels that this incident is another part of the case for that and it would
3:52 am
it's said that threats to international shipping the rights of navigation require an international response so clearly they think that this is another reason that there should be some sort of international task force in the area thank you very much. in tehran as we had for lurie the u.s. is calling for an international coalition to patrol the area which they ran in saying about that proposal with the iranian government position is likely to the say stay the same as it has for some time now iran has told neighboring countries both friends and foes alike that it is the united states that is the destabilizing force in this part of the world and as far as iran is concerned it is a caretaker for the strait of hormuz it is part of its territorial waters and iranian officials we've spoken to on numerous occasions about the conflicts around this waterway have said that as far as they're concerned they have been the
3:53 am
caretakers longer than the united states has been a country that's something government officials are often quoted as saying now what they're talking about is the fact that the persian empire in the 1500s fought a war with the portuguese navy for the control of the straits the persian empire won and as far as iranian officials are now concerned they say that iran in some form or whatever form the country is taken has been in charge of not only being caretakers of the strait of hormuz but also looking after the shipping lanes and the vessels that pass through that waterway so iranian officials here will see the american claim that the waterways need to be protected by some sort of international coalition against an iranian threat they will see that is likely laughable and something that is simply designed to escalate tensions in the region so miserably thank you very much.

to put it out eventually. france has passed a controversial tax bill targeting tech giants the 1st of its type from one of the world's major economies a 3 percent tax affects companies like google apple facebook and amazon but has no touch about reports from paris the united states is not happy. a show of hands and a display of defiance french senators passed a law taxing tech giants despite straits by the united states washington says the levy on thoroughly targets american companies and it's opened an inquiry a move condemned by france's finance minister i think that the best way of dealing with that kind of difficulties between the u.s. and france is not through it is not opening a procedure under section 3 or one for the 1st time you history of the friendship between the u.s. and french it is to build

4:00 am
approach to international disagreements can we should mr trump threatens everyone in all areas he's become an article amity when you're head of such a power you have a responsibility you don't amuse yourself by threatening states that are as responsible and democratic is france and that seek to the find the sort of regulation needed to address today's new economies it's. so that there can be justice that the european commission has been pushing for tech firms to abide by e.u. competition law rules and pay more tax in europe france's new law is a major step in that direction it also fulfills one of the french president's campaign promises emanuel mccraw of the us but taxing wealthy tech companies was one of the yellow vests main demands so french public opinion is likely to be on macro side. al-jazeera paris still to come why academics in israel are being targeted in a so-called witch hunt.
