Is Iran's drought the fault of the West?

This summer Iran was hit by one of the worst heatwaves on record.

Drought and dust storms led to soaring temperatures and some of the country's largest rivers running dry.

Mohsen Asgari travelled to some of Iran's remotest provinces at the peak of the heatwave.
