Iranian youth struggle with unemployment

Country has one of world's highest 'brain drain' rates as many young people leave to seek jobs elsewhere.

    High unemployment rates among Iran's youth are forcing many to leave the country to seek jobs.

    The country's official unemployment rate is around 12 percent, but some analysts think the actual figure may be double that.

    Youth unemployment could be as high as 40 percent and Iran has one of the world's highest "brain drain" rates.
