Iran vows to fight for right to sell oil despite US sanctions

Iran's leaders threaten to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if they are not allowed to sell their oil.

    Iran's supreme leader, senior military commanders, top diplomat and the president have all in recent days attacked US sanctions imposed on Tehran.

    Battle-ready warships are patrolling the high-traffic Strait of Hormuz, with Iranian officials saying if they can't sell oil through the strait, no one will.

    Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi reports from the Strait of Hormuz near Iran's southern coast.
