marching get to remain values and state to the streets of london a show of solidarity with europe 3 months before the u.k. is set to leave the e.u. . and a new space capsule is ready to take nasa back to the moon 50 years after that history making giant leap. the u.k. foreign secretary is warning of dangers see the ensign national shipping after a british flag tanker was seized in the strait of hormuz jeremy hunt called it a hostile acts and is expected to announce further measures against iran on monday for now the u.k. is warning all its vessels to avoid the straits which is one of the world's big. izzie is the shipping lanes and vis is what triggered that response commanders from
8:50 am
iran's revolutionary guard seen here seizing the old sign kerr on friday you cases iran has tried to justify it says a tit for tat response to the earlier capture of a rainy and tanker in gibraltar well france and germany have condemned the arena in action while u.s. central command's has stepped up air patrols over the straits iran though says the british flag tanker was involved in an accident with a fishing boats and has opened an investigation into whether it broke the law the barker has more from london. this is the moment the british tanker was seized by iran's revolutionary guard in the strait of hormuz. special forces dropped down on to the deck of the speeding bessel forcing it into iranian waters the 30000 ton stana imperio was on its way to saudi arabia nothing's been heard from her 23 crew since the revolutionary guard who released these images say the
8:51 am
tanker was being escorted by a privilege warship that tried to stop the seizure britain's ministry of defense declined to comment on the claim but detain tank is now at the center of a diplomatic storm these images were released by news agency linked to the iranian government iran says the ship breached maritime rules when it collided with a fishing boat and has been taken to the nearby port of panda for investigation. a british flag tanker was involved in an accident with an iranian fishing boat on a transit route a distress call was sent to assist the causes of the accident unfortunately the british vessel ignored this and began to change course contrary to international regulations a 2nd tanker the british operated liberian flag was also briefly detained before being allowed to resume its journey the british government warned u.k. vessels to stay away from the strait of hormuz for an interim period in
8:52 am
a phone call with his a rainy and counterpart britain's foreign secretary jeremy hunt told mohammed javid zarif he was extremely disappointed with the seizure serif said the vessel would face legal action this is totally and utterly unacceptable it raises very serious questions about the security of british shipping and indeed international shipping in the straits of hormuz the seizure of the tanker comes after british forces detained this iranian vessel grace one off gibraltar earlier this month saying it was transporting oil to syria in breach of e.u. sanctions iran denounced the detention calling it an act of piracy and senior iranian officials threatened to impound a british tanker in retaliation. which is why many in britain's foreign office view the seizure of the stoner impera as direct tit for tat retaliation jeremy hunt britain's foreign secretary has said that he needs to find a delicate way of diffusing tensions over grace one without endangering more
8:53 am
british ships it will require very nimble diplomacy it's all about getting the greats one back and now they have a lot more leverage in this game because the the the british government now is to make sure that they get their tanka back as silly as it sounds but i think that's the kind of environment where the u.k. is in the middle of growing tensions between the u.s. and iran over the u.s. is decision to pull out of the iranian nuclear deal and impose tough new sanctions on the country the u.k. opposes the move but remains a key u.s. ally it might seem counter intuitive for iran to cease the stand imperio given britain's support for the nuclear deal but this could be one way of getting the u.k. and its european allies to encourage the u.s. to ease off iran barca al-jazeera london. well william lawrence is a professor at the elliott school of international affairs at george washington
8:54 am
university he says the u.k. response needs to be measured in order to avoid escalating the crisis. the u.k. is about to announce action sanctions either sunday or monday. briefing the parliament on the situation and it's possible that they were put in place the same sanctions that they imposed on iran prior to the iran nuclear deal and if they go that far if the sanctions are that severe we could create another reason for rand to to continue to violate the terms of the nuclear agreement and increase its and richmond over uranium etc etc so it's very much in britain's interest right now to disconnect as much as possible the sanctions from the iran nuclear situation and from the us maximum pressure campaign and to just connect it which was the reason this was done to the of course the seizing of the iranian tanker in gibraltar and then it will be interesting to see going forward whether the the british can can
8:55 am
can can open up lines of diplomacy that can deescalate further by making concessions to iran right now of course theresa may is stepping down next week and the british are in a very weak position in terms of you know what they're going to do in terms of their own domestic organization politically and how that plays out internationally and they did not join yet the international coalition operations center and all that's there to protect shipping in the straits and that was a mistake on britain's part so they're going to have to figure out what they're going to do to protect shipping going forward. british airways and german airline lufthansa have suspended flights to the egyptian capital cairo sites and security concerns be a suspension will last 7 days to a life or a security assessments but the airline has given the details about the move egypt's faisel tourism sector was already under pressure after a series of attacks on businesses 2015 when 200 people were killed in the bombing
8:56 am
of a russian passenger jets in sharm el sheikh. well the u.k. has long advised against all but essential travel to certain parts of egypt the government's web site warns terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in egypt or the most attacks occur in north sinai there is a risk of terrorist attacks across the country well seen as saudi is a foreign policy adviser at gulf states analyst 6 and joins us now i live from tampa florida by skype good to have you with us on al-jazeera we're still unclear as to the the nature of the threat that has caused be and have tons of council these flights but what sort of impact do you see this having. i do not believe it's going to have any impact in the short term but because egyptian economy is heavily dependent on tourism if it continues for
8:57 am
a long period of time i think it will show impact impact on the egyptian economy egypt for the fiscal year of 20182019 have had a 5.6 person economy growth. which after years of growing it is rebounding but as i said if it's going through this growing this is going to continue or prolonged period of time it will impact the growth and the position of president fifi in egypt and this appears to be a recurring problem we referenced there the fact that there was that that the dining of the russian passenger jet at least 200 people killed i and i we are seeing security threats which are impacting the aviation industry and we imagine that would have knock on effects why is egypt's unable to deal with the security problem in north sinai in particular.
8:58 am
i believe president p.c. . is really on able to establish or maintain security in it in certain parts of parts of the country especially the time peninsula and the western desert and but i was looking at the state department u.s. state department travel advisory website at that as either as of july 2nd they have increased the risk of travel to egypt which as i said it's going to have a negative impact on actually caught me by going back to what i was saying i don't think cairo is able to maintain security or to patient security in some parts of the country ok seem as though they will have to leave it there but thank you very much indeed for sharing your thoughts with i'll just say i'm a thank you. thousands of people have marched to the u.k.
8:59 am
parliament hoping to persuade the next prime minister to stay in the european union organizers of the march for change say they want to send a probe message to boris johnson the man tipped to take office next week and in baba reports ok. by demanding a rethink with time running out until britain's next brics it deadline campaign is from around the country rejected the idea of leaving the e.u. with no deal something both prospective conservative leaders say they can live with is dangerous and democratic know the electorate but we think the brits is a better idea to want to make sure that they know what we think we should now have a step in the end and so that now the people are well informed to know exactly what we're being up to snow when they're what we were told in the name of to reason may's replacement is conservative leader and prime minister is announce next tuesday these protesters accused both candidates jeremy hunt and boris johnson of treading the same populist grounds as nigel farrar as leader of the brics
9:00 am
a party but few doubt johnson he famously made the now defunct claim breaks it would say 350000000 pounds a week is headed for 10 downing street here to see if the fact that we are about to get a prime minister and paste on us that a very very very small and incredibly unrepresentative portion of the population has elected who is peddling the worst kind of bricks at a new deal crush outbreaks that will hurt jobs young people's opportunities and potentially even peace clearly it's boris johnson and his commitment to leaving the e.u. home what may that's motivating many of these protesters ironically the chances of a no deal breaks it may have diminished in the last few days. this week britain's independent economic full cost set a new deal breaks it would plunge the economy into recession next year and chancellor philip hammond has hinted he would vote against his.
