Iran leader begins rare Africa tour


Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi is in Kenya at the start of a three-day African tour. 

It’s the first time that an Iranian president has visited Africa for more than 10 years. Mr Raisi will also be visiting Uganda and Zimbabwe. 

He’s being accompanied by his diplomatic chief and a business delegation, as Iran looks for new allies and commercial opportunities. 

Mr Raisi has also recently visited Latin America and Indonesia, where Iran re-joined the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
