Iran and Saudi jockey for OPEC position

Sanctions have taken their toll on Iran's oil revenues, and the country is taking the fight to OPEC.

    OPEC, the group that controls 40 per cent of the world's oil, is trying to decide on its next leader.

    Both Iran and Saudi Arabia want their candidates in the top position.
