the mediterranean but the project is controversial. also coming up the game's afoot interpol has issued a red notice for the arrest of carla skull but will lebanon take action against the former news on. this is the business i'm on in berlin welcome what a difference a day makes fresh from yesterday's 1st day optimism as markets reopened for a new trading trading here day 2 is looking much bleaker news that a u.s. airstrike killed a top iranian general ratcheting up geopolitical tension in the region have struck fear across trading floors worries over iranian retaliation and further instability and the crude rich middle east have sent oil prices soaring the missile strike that killed iran's most powerful military leader custom soleimani marks a dramatic escalation of tensions between the united states and iran the white house and pentagon confirmed the killing saying the strike at baghdad airport had
3:46 pm
been carried out under a direct order from the president the u.s. airstrike sparked concerns over an escalation of regional tensions that could disrupt crude supplies on news of the assassination brant crude rose just over 4 percent spiking at 69 dollars 50 a barrel that's its highest since mid september when saudi oil facilities were attacked briefly slashing output in the world's top exporter by half asian stocks indices were broadly lower after the airstrike investors turned to safe haven assets such as gold swiss francs and japanese yen as they brace themselves for repercussions. let's bring in our financial correspondent julie bartz in frankfurt or early fears of escalation of conflict escalation in the region clearly have investors who now what action do you think they want to see from iran and the u.s. at this point. well clearly some indication that there's not going to be the kind
