UN: At least 70 migrants thought drowned US Iran tensions: Rouhani pulls 1 day ago   05:52

According to the United Nations, at least 70 migrants are now thought to have drowned in the Mediterranean Sea after leaving northwest Libya on Thursday. Their boat capsized near the Kerkennah Islands, off Sfax in Tunisia. The UN says this is the deadliest attempted crossing of the Mediterranean since January. At least sixteen people were rescued. The UN says that fewer people are making the journey to Europe, but these journeys are becoming deadlier. The European Union has internally agreed to distribute illegal migrants, but Italy says it's closed to migrants, though it did allow the humanitarian rescue ship Mare Jonio to dock in Lampedusa. Governments in Europe are coming under fire for their response to the drownings. Jan Egeland, head of humanitarian group The Norwegian Refugee Council, says the international community needs to stabilize Libya and the sub-Sahara African countries producing flows of migrants, and stop fueling the fire of conflict in Libya. Sea Watch's Chris Grodotzki joins DW in the studio to answer some difficult question.

US Iran tensions: Rouhani pulls UN: At least 70 migrants thought drowned 1 day ago   08:15

Iran has announced that it is partially withdrawing from a landmark nuclear deal struck with world powers in 2015. It comes exactly one year after the US, under the orders of President Donald Trump, pulled out of the accord, which was designed to limit Tehran's ability to produce nuclear fuel. President Hassan Rouhani has said Iran plans to stop complying with certain parts of the agreement and says if the deal isn't renegotiated within 60 days, Iran will once again begin enriching uranium to high levels. The move is fueling a growing confrontation between Tehran and Washington. On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an unannounced trip to neighboring Iraq, where he accused Iran of planning 'imminent attacks.' The US is also deploying an aircraft carrier strike group to the region, citing alleged 'new threats' from Tehran.
So what exactly was the 2015 nuclear deal about? Tehran cut its existing uranium stockpile. Uranium is a material that, when enriched, can be used to produce nuclear weapons. It also dramatically cut its number of centrifuges, which are used in the enrichment process. In return the US, UK, Germany, France, China and Russia lifted international sanctions, which had been crippling the Iranian economy, causing the rial to plummet. But Trump says the deal fails to deter Iran from developing ballistic missiles. A year ago the United States pulled out of the deal and has reintroduced all nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran, along with a slew of other punitive measures. In recent days, the US military deployed a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in response to "a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" from Iran.
