11:16 am
hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us a tanker carrying iranian oil is preparing to set sail from gibraltar after being held there since early july the british territory has released the grace one despite a last minute legal bid by the u.s. to keep the ship in detention the best was seized under suspicion of bringing a rainy and oil to syria in breach of the e.u. and u.s. sanctions the red has denied its cargo was ever bound for syria following the capture of the grace one iran's seize a british flag tanker near the persian gulf reports suggest tehran is now planning to release that ship. for now let's cross over to d w's teresa trial for she joins us from an iranian island in the strait of hormuz so theresa iran is obviously
11:17 am
eager to get its ship back from joe brawl to if it does will it then release that british black tank. from what we're hearing that is very likely to happen yes the british tanker has already been moved from the place where it was detained in the strait of hormuz a couple of weeks ago closer to the. islamic revolutionary guard controlling everything and that's a place we have. specifically as journalists cannot go to as we were told to not quote and danger proceedings so apparently they're still preparing for an exchange but we have to keep in mind that the revolutionary guards and iran as a whole do not have a lot of trust in the united states or the united kingdom so before the iranian vessel is not freed this peril here in the persian gulf will not be released either now the u.s. is against your brawl to releasing the iranian tanker that it has tried to block it
11:18 am
with legal moves so far is iran concerned that the u.s. could take further steps to prevent the ships return. well at least nobody here would be surprised by that iran's foreign minister zarif said washington's 1st attempt to stop the release of the tanker was an attempt piracy move so he said washington was abusing the international legal system to steal iranian property and that is if you sat by many iranians we've spoken to some people here. and they say they do not want a conflict to happen with other countries not here in their region and elsewhere but that they are willing to step up and defend their own country if necessary so that is why everybody here in the persian gulf is monitoring very closely what is happening. but they were just talking about 2 ships here but there's of course of much bigger story going on the conflict between iran and the united states the u.s.
11:19 am
under trial has been pursuing what it calls a a policy of maximum pressure against iran what effect is that having on the regime in tehran. well islamic leadership in iran seems very unimpressed by that campaign but that itself is not very surprising because the islamic republic is all about resisting u.s. pressure but really affected by tom's compay no ordinary iranians because in the past 12 months prices for stock items like chicken i'll betcha levels have gone up a lot for example a simple tomato is now 5 times more expensive than last year and the people most affected by that are of course ordinary iranians especially the poor ones who were already struggling to make ends meet before all of that happened so when the u.s. president now says his sanction and his policy as a whole are not targeting iranians but just the islamic leadership of the

government of iran people here really have a hard time believing him to them that just sounds like simple mockery. to research thank you very much for brains up today teresa tropper there on a rainy in territory in the strait of hormuz. israel has barred 2 u.s. democratic congresswoman from entering the country after president donald trump tweeted that they should be banned congresswomen hon omar of minnesota emigrated to the u.s. with her family from somalia when she was a child and representative rashida leave of michigan was born in america to palestinian parents both have criticized israel's treatment of the palestinians and called for a boycott of israeli products. some have already noted the irony a month after u.s. president trump said congresswoman reseated to leave should quote go back to where her family came from she can't believe took to twitter to protest israel's decision
11:21 am
to bar her and fellow congresswoman omar from visiting the west bank she posted the photo of her palestinian grandmother who lives there calling the decision a sign of weakness on the part of israel. i know the 2 freshman lawmakers the 1st muslim women in congress are outspoken critics of benjamin netanyahu is right wing government. they support sanctions and an international boycott against israel to end the occupation of the west bank where they had planned a trip netanyahu is announcement that the 2 would be denied entry came after trump urged him not to let them in the prime minister said the move was in line with israeli law. there's no 100 of whom there is one thing we are unable to accept by law israeli law prohibits the entry into israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on israel few months and. trump a plot of the decision he had earlier encouraged. the things that they've said
11:22 am
omar to leave what they've said is it disgraceful so i can't imagine why israel would let them in. while trump claimed without further evidence that the 2 congresswoman hate jews many jewish american politicians were quick to defend them including senator bernie sanders and the mayor of minneapolis omar's hometown. it. has to be and from israel is a jewish man i totally disagree with. i think it's the wrong decision. i. feel strongly that you know you can be of the jew and also say that some of the ways that the israeli government is able things are wrong to lead said she would challenge the travel ban on to continue to fight back. in town demanded they provide access on for me and in any of my colleagues to come to
11:23 am
israel and enter the cost areas and to be able to listen to your people israel's decision could have unwanted political consequences especially within the us democratic party earlier this year top democrats had singled out representative omar saying statements she made on israel were anti-semitic life but now the party has all but closed rings around the 2 muslim congress women. now some of the other stories making headlines around the world today india says it will gradually literacy frictions on movement and communication in kashmir in the coming days the government made the announcement at a supreme court hearing seeking the lifting of a media blackout because we are has been in lockdown for 12 days since delhi revoked the region's special steps. north korea has launched at least 2 projectiles from near the city of tongue into the east sea that's according to the south korean

a beijing mouthpiece is backing intervention the global times an english language daily says that if hong kong cannot restore the rule of law on its own it's imperative for the central government to take direct action. the paper also insists there will not be any repeat of the tiananmen square massacre of $989.00 when the chinese army fired on protesters in beijing chinese troops have been carrying out drills on the border to hong kong for more protests are planned today. w. charlotte chelsey until joins us now from hong kong charlotte what are we to make of those statements in the chinese media it sounds like beijing is preparing to send in troops to restore order in hong kong. but of course those on warnings that people here are taking extremely seriously no one has forgotten what happened in tiananmen square as you mention in 1989 but i think most
11:26 am
analysts think that it's still extremely unlikely that china that beijing will send in troops into hong kong sent me a 70 imminently they people think it's unlikely best because it would come at a huge economic and political cost the beijing people here say that their main concern at the moment is the increasingly hardened rhetoric coming out of beijing and the impact that that will have on authorities here in hong kong people here say that the police have become increasingly violent say the recent weeks they worry that that could could escalate even further they were so concerned about the sanctions that protesters could face for taking to the streets at the moment dozens of protesters have been charged with rioting non-sentence a charge that carries up to 10 years in prison and people fear that once here in beijing such as terrorism which now we're now hearing that they describe these processes close to terrorism could mean that we could see even even higher
