Sanctions on Iran. Iran flexes its muscles.

Slightly differing information coming through about the details but the tensions with Iran have taken a further step backwards.

Further sanctions from the US and Europe on Iran are likely including sanctions on oil from Iran. This may cause Iran to react irrationally and attempt to close shipping on the Strait of Hormuz where further oil is transported.
