WATCH: Sightline with Tim Marshall on Iranian unrest

Another wave of demonstrations has rocked Iran. Anger has been spurred due to many factors, including a nationwide drought and a struggling economy.

Demonstrations have sprung up from Tehran to the mainly Arabic-speaking Khuzestan province in the southwest of the country. And as President Hassan Rouhani seeks economic partnership in Europe to combat a boycott from the US, the Iranian population grows more discontent with its government.

Tim Marshall, from The National's London bureau, explains the civil unrest in Iran in the latest edition of Sightline. Watch the full video above.
