Global Markets: Iran makes arrests in plane disaster

By MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Jan. 14 (MarketsFarm) – The following is a glance at the news moving markets in Canada and globally.

– Iran has arrested a number of suspects connected to the accidental downing of a passenger plane that killed all 176 onboard last week. The announcement comes amid increasing protests against the government, with numerous protestors also reportedly detained.

– Britain, France and Germany have triggered the dispute mechanism in their nuclear deal with Iran in an effort to help avoid nuclear proliferation amid the latest confrontation between the U.S. and Iran. While the U.S. backed out of the deal in 2018, the Europeans maintain that the absence of the U.S. should not give Iran the room to reduce compliance.

– Russian hackers have reportedly hacked the servers for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma. The company is a key factor in impeachment hearings against U.S. President Donald Trump, as Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden previously sat on its board.
