hall there in westminster jenna thank you well as i was saying there one of the key challenges facing the new u.k. prime minister is to contain the ongoing tensions with iran and those bars jonson's tipped to be the new prime minister tehran says it doesn't want confrontation with the u.k. over the seizure of a british flag oil tanker in the gulf last week i think it is very important to go to drums and ask. 10 downing street who understand that you know on does not seek confrontation in iran who. normally. based on mutual respect. well the u.k. is calling for a stronger western led military presence in the gulf the u.k.'s foreign secretary hunt says he wants a european led naval mission to ensure shipping through the strait of hormuz and that's where iran sees the british flying all the time go on friday claiming it was violating international maritime law the u.k.

is calling it an act of state piracy lansley has more now from london this emergency couldn't have come as a worse time for the u.k. and the ministers who left the crisis meeting all know it's apart from anything else they'll be a new prime minister this week probably with a different take on the situation. still the u.k. can do nothing in the face of what it regards as a provocation by iran the way in which the capture of the u.k. flight tanker was filmed by the commandos who took control of its refusal to obey the demands of the british frigates in the strait of hormuz to let the time to go all cut very deep at the heart of a british military establishment used to the days when britannia ruled the waves and consequently the foreign secretary told parliament minister the u.k. would seek a european led maritime missions of the gulf states because iran had to understand the consequences of its actions if iran continues on this dangerous path they must accept the price will be a larger western military presence in the waters along the coastline not because we

wish to increase tensions but simply because freedom of navigation is a principle which and its allies will always defend the british government has been widely accused by many m.p.'s of having no dig a strategy over this crisis with iran let alone the naval fire to protect tankers in the gulf now there are concerns that this administration has taken its eye off the ball and certainly that the u.k. has been ill prepared for this iran certainly appears not to feel intimidated by the u.k. putting out images of the tanker crew none of them british maintaining their all in good health and being looked after it is far more concerned about getting his own tanker back from gibraltar where it remains impounded if the u.k. did that the crisis would be over but it would be the wrong signal to send to the americans who continue to pressurize london to follow their harsh align with tehran
11:08 am
by wednesday they'll be a new prime minister here by thursday a new set of government ministers and by friday very possibly a new strategy towards iran may be a more hawkish one than the one on monday and one which is more aligned to the american position but iran knows that the u.k. appears quite weak at the moment and by itself does not have the strength for a fight barnsley al-jazeera in london. kenya's finance minister has pleaded not guilty to corruption charges and rewrote it is accused of awarding contracts and payments for the construction of dams to an italian known company it's alleged $28.00 people have been arrested in connection with the case catherine sawyer joins us live now from county in northern kenya catherine so what happened in court today and what exactly are the charges against him. while the minister is in court with 4 others he looks quite subdued and the prosecution is still reading out the charges which include defrauding the government off
