The fallout in Iran – podcast

Guardian international correspondent Michael Safi talks to Rachel Humphreys about the latest developments in Iran, following the US assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Suleimani.

Iran has admitted that its military made an “unforgivable mistake” in unintentionally shooting down a Ukrainian jetliner and killing all 176 people on board, after days of rejecting western intelligence reports that pointed to Tehran being responsible. At the same time, Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, has warned that European soldiers in the Middle East could be in danger after the UK, France and Germany triggered a dispute mechanism in the nuclear agreement that could lead to the reimposition of international sanctions on the country.

Also, Labour MP Nadia Whitmore talks about being the youngest member of parliament.
