Iran currency halves in less than a year

Shoppers in Iran are feeling the pinch.

    The value of the Iranian Rial has halved in less than a year.

    There have been further threats to the economy posed by the imposition of US sanctions and the loss of oil customers after Donald Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal.

    While some Iranians blame the Americans, others say their own leaders should have known better.
