Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said he supports a fuel price rise that has sparked protests across the country. The Ayatollah blamed “hooligans” and counter-revolutionaries for violence that has been witnessed in several cities….. Under the new fuel measures, each motorist is allowed to buy 60 litres (13 gallons) of petrol a month at 15,000 rials ($0.13; £0.10) a litre. Each additional litre then costs 30,000 rials. Previously, drivers were allowed up to 250 litres at 10,000 rials per litre, AP reports.
