State refiners drive India's July Iran oil imports to a record

There have been several demonstrations in Iranian cities in recent days over economic conditions and public buildings have been damaged.

Also on Friday, about 500 protesters attacked a seminary in Karaj and broke windows with stones and bricks.

The government of President Hassan Rouhani also faces opposition from conservatives and religious leaders, who have long opposed his outreach to the West and are keen to leverage anger over corruption to unseat him.

The oil market has been speculating about how much of Iran's exports could be eroded by the USA sanctions, with analysts from BMI Research to Mizuho Securities predicting that China might boost its imports of cheap supplies from the state and offset cuts by other nations. "The judiciary should find these people and arrest them", the cleric says, to chants of "Allahu Akbar" from the crowd.

Iran has been furious over U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of an global agreement on Iran's nuclear program and re-impose sanctions on Tehran.

Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reports that a man taking part in a protest in the northern province of Alborz was fatally shot.

The three European signatories to the nuclear deal, the United Kingdom, France and Germany agreed with China and Russian Federation last month to continue to support Iran through the reimposition of U.S. sanctions.

Senior Iranian officials have warned the country would not easily yield to a renewed US campaign to strangle Iran's vital oil exports.

Sanctions will also be reapplied to U.S. imports of Iranian carpets and foodstuffs and on certain related financial transactions.

On Sunday Iran Air will take delivery of five ATR commercial aircraft from the French-Italian firm, slipping in under the wire before the sanctions return.

He said Mohammad Alibak, now director of the Foreign Ministry's Oman and Yemen Office, will be appointed as head of Iran's interest section in Riyadh.

"There have been advances made in the past two weeks, and I believe there are signs that (Iran's) Interests Section office would open and become active".

Although smaller foreign firms have vowed to work around the U.S. measures, multinationals such as France's Total and Peugeot, and Germany's Siemens have already said they will have to pull out.

Iran has started naval exercises in the Gulf amid heightened tensions with Washington, US officials have revealed.

"In November, when oil sales are affected, we will have a clearer view of the impact on daily lives".
