3:00 am
on this issue well i have to say that britain has put itself in a very difficult position because of the holding go for. iran has been saying for after that cup and that it will retaliate and get get a hold of you to sleep and we see that this cup until the u.k. must be much more prepared and be much more productive to deal with that no as we can see there is no other solution apart from going into diplomatic means and more or less respond to this tit for tat back to iran. moved on with and we're seeing that probably the only solution would be for both ships to be released from both sides how likely is that to happen that the u.k. will in fact release that gibraltar for the iranians to release. on friday what could be going on behind the scenes right now where we're obviously hearing all the official and diplomatic talk well we already saw that
3:01 am
jeremy hunt had a discussion with the counterpart so discussion chivalric started up the higher level but there are definitely discussions at much lower level in order to try to come up with a concrete solution it seems that iran is trying to use these as a short term way of sewing that it sticks to what it is the clear that did want to allow anyone to risk its international sleeping but also this can be used as a leverage for further long term discussions in order to talk of the problem with a nuclear deal yeah and it is of course the context of all of this is that nuclear deal but just tell us what's at stake obviously the strait of hormuz. credibly important and strategic waterway what's at stake if these tensions continue to ratchet up. well as it has been discussed and as you presented. before 30 percent of global oil and 5 percent or so one 3rd in one 4th
3:02 am
of global oil and global natural gust goes through the state of hormuz so if you interrupt that if you cause they should see the region then shipping companies wouldn't be going through there and visual call it goes in major disruption in oil supply in natural gas supply globally and the prices will go up so we can see that it means today and in such a specific area can have a month's global effect so this is why the story is so important ok we thank you very much a cronies company this for speaking to us from oxford so as you're hearing earlier from kristen the u.s. is deploying troops to saudi arabia as the situation in the region grows tense or the pentagon believes their deployments will provide an additional deterrent some of its over $500.00 military personnel have already arrived at the prince sultan air base south of riyadh's the u.s. with forces withdrew from saudi arabia back in 2003 commits is the former assistant secretary for political military affairs under president george w. bush and he explains the importance of a u.s.
3:03 am
military presence in saudi arabia. well the united states has always been very clear about when they deploy troops i don't know particularly when these troops were announced but it is clear that over the last few announcements that are located in has not been revealed likely these are troops that are manning patriot units that are providing air defense protection in case of us in case of an iranian either missile or or aircraft attack or perhaps not knowing their location i can only speculate that they may be there to protect saudi arabia from some of the missiles that they see emanating from yemen but this would appear to be a routine deployment of troops think it actually demonstrates that the united states and its coalition allies are willing to protect their troops and protect their allies. the tensions would probably increase if the iranians continue to make these threats and the countries in the region felt that they had to go it alone i think when everybody takes
3:04 am
a look at what's been deployed why it's been deployed in libya it is understood or should be understood that this is merely defensive in nature and it's there simply to send a clear message to anybody that would want to attack our allies that our allies have sufficient capability of their own and with us assistance to fend off a majority of any type of violence that they want to send their way on to more head on the al jazeera news hour including for the 1st time millions go to the polls in pakistan's tribal northwest to vote for a political assembly. protest encounter protest in hong kong pro brazing demonstrators take to the streets after weeks of anti china rallies. and from legendary champion to challenger manny quaid weighs in for his latest title fights top stories coming up with peter and sports. i.

3:19 am
iran seizure for british like tanker in the strait of hormuz is only the latest in a series of incidents that have raised questions tensions rather around the region let's take a look at some of the key moments over the last few months on may the 13th for oil tankers were damaged by explosions off the coast of the u.a.e. the united states accused iran of sabotage a claim iran strongly denies a month later it happened again 2 tankers were reportedly targeted in the gulf of oman and iranian vessel rescued the crews but the u.s. secures the iranians of attaching mines to the ships just 6 days later iran shot down a u.s. drone that it says violated its airspace the u.s. says the drone was over international waters on july the 4th british marines seize that iranian tanker of gibraltar in the western mediterranean britain says the ship was carrying oil to syria in violation of sanctions the iranians called it piracy
3:20 am
then on july the 10th the british navy chased away 3 iranian vessels it says were threatening a british tanker then thursday the u.s. claimed it shot down an iranian drone threatening one of its warships in the region iran denies these claims the next day iran's revolutionary guard sees the u.k. flying stana imperio claiming it violated it maritime laws or so jabari has more from to run. the spokesman for iran's revolutionary guard has said that indeed there was a 2nd british vessel that was trying to prevent the iranians from seizing this tanker on friday in the strait of hormuz now the revolutionary guard has also released dramatic footage which shows the moment the tanker was seized by them we see a number of iranian commanders in a helicopter and they are parachuted down into this british navy british vessel
3:21 am
rather before it was seized on friday because the iranians said that it was causing a dangerous situation in the strait of hormuz the iranians have said that those tanker had turned off the tracking devices and it was not responding to any communications that were trying to be made with the crew on board the iranian society decided to seize this vessel because they said it was traveling in the wrong maritime direction and also it was not responding to any of the calls the seize this vessel and took it to the nearby support city up on that up bus where the $23.00 crewmembers are now still there waiting to be questioned by the authorities the foreign ministers of all 3 for us also commented saying that this is a very very different incident the union revolutionary guard was simply upholding international maritime law by seizing this vessel and it is not comparable to what the british navy did in the strait of gibraltar by seizing the iranian oil tanker grace one on july 4th where they still kept it there we have said that this is
3:22 am
a very very different situation and it's not comparable with the other one in the strait of gibraltar for now the crew members are waiting to be interviewed by the authorities and the foreign minister has stressed that the ship will have to go through the proper legal channels in iran before it can be released well 1st it was a giant inflatable of donald trump as a baby which was hoisted into london skyline now it's the turn of boris johnson the front runner to becoming the u.k.'s prime minister next week let's cross over to marry him in our european broadcast center in london for more on the. yes that's right terry and johnson hasn't been thousands of people attended a pro rally here in london and use the event to create a giant or a split depicting him as a crying baby with a new deadline for breaks it just 3 months away people wanted to express their solidarity with the e.u. former london mayor has been one of the figureheads of the movement to take person
