UAE denies Iran remarks

Row over islands escalates despite denial of envoy's support for military action against Tehran.

    The United Arab Emirates says reports it would be willing to back military action against Iran are "inaccurate". Its ambassador in the US said earlier this week that the Emirates would support military action against Iran.

    And as Dan Nolan reports, those remarks are heightening tensions over three disputed islands in the Gulf.
