force the violence started when the government announced a sudden 3 fold increase in fuel prices. a decision which the president says was not made lightly the government says the revenues raised will be used to help the poor yet. we explored all avenues to try and help those in need we had 3 choices 1st to raise taxes across the country 2nd to increase the size of oil and 3rd to increase the price of fuel we need that revenue to help millions of people who are struggling it was not an easy choice to make the spike government reassurances that this fuel price increase want to feck the price of other goods in the country many iranians are not helpful. not a member of a matter of course it will affect other prices the press of gasoline has always been important here are we supposed to make up the difference with a small subsidy from the government it was in the kitchen some people's lives lose depend on fuel and this will impact the lives you do in the present fuel goes up it
8:13 pm
impacts the price of other things. the government defends its decision and maintains that those causing the disturbances are not part of what it considers to be the general public. the government recognizes the people's right to protest but a protester is different from a writer i think today's demonstrations are 80 percent less than yesterday and i think by tomorrow it will all be gone in the capital security forces were highly visible in certain parts of the city on monday aiming to prevent any further unrest it's not just the security forces that have been deployed across the country officials have also announced a complete internet blackout and as nearly 60000000000 iranians wait to receive their subsidies many are wondering if the disruptions will be worth its north as a bari. they started back again to our breaking news story saudi arabia says that the rebels have hijacked a vessel south of the red sea now the ship is apparently towing

a south korean drilling rig jerry north what is the chairman of the risk management and security company must. he joins us on skype from maine star in. just breaking to our reporter on the ground there who says that from his sources there are confirming that the who fees have seized this vessel they will now be trying to determine exactly where it comes from what the process is and then release it how do you respond to that news got here through very carefully this it's 30 days yet we don't know exactly what's happened and what i see in this one report out there that they. have taken this vessel. and and i think what we need to do is just wait until you get more information see what's actually really going on you've got one story of a story in the saudis and. the evidence was just speaking to a reporter again the hoof is a sign that the crowd understand why the international community would be concerned about this seize a vessel if it is suspect and then they carry out their own processes before
8:15 pm
releasing it that's not necessarily print for instance how south korea will see it if indeed it is a south korean vessel yet how many very different view on this from that he's. not a recognized. that just about organization 'd but they have demonstrated over the last few years during the civil war in their conflict against the saudi the coalition that they do have ability in the marathon to do things and to just to disrupt the missile attacks or laying mines or in this case they've taken a vessel for whatever reason they've chosen to take it and not just an ability with its maritime capacity but clearly as we saw with the strikes on saudi oil plants as we've seen with the capacity of the who these to maintain this resistance years now into this conflict it says that the idea of a military resolution to this is looking creasing the unlikely doesn't it given the
8:16 pm
ongoing capacity of the of these. well that's a very difficult that's a very difficult one to judge but yes they certainly demonstration a great deal. out across the whole spectrum of areas so insurgency type warfare and the fact that it may take it into the marathon in the way i have is well actually it's quite it's quite different from what we've seen from other terrorist organizations which always struggle to operate in the in the maritime domain and there has been some reporting some speculation that they've been discussions between saudis and who thinks of course the the restoring the troops around the region which might have led to potentially some sort of a bright through but when you see incidents like this and the guy was still wanting to find out the exact details but a potentially provocative measure like this what does that say about the potential for being able to continue negotiations or negotiate some form of settlement the end of this conflict. relation like the saudis who you have got there you know
8:17 pm
quite a reasonable maritime capability at the bed sea in the southern red sea is really their own and for that to be operating in the way they are where a vessel of this type of support vessel whether it's towing something or not we will see it as a port that's operating in the southern right say it it's a very. it's a an area which is full of islands and that means. you do have to be very wary of who's around you and what's going on but the fact that the saudis can't necessarily protect us all the time in that area is is quite a serious issue for them if that's what they're doing putting vessels through there and and then having that he's snatch them from under there ours northwood thank you again for giving us your time on the program thank you. catalona years later kim
