US Slaps Iran with New Sanctions

The US is hitting Iran with new sanctions - this time over its suspected ballistic missile programme.

The move comes after the White House accused Tehran of not sticking to the “spirit” of the 2015 nuclear deal, despite formally complying with its conditions.

It says the extra measures are necessary because of Tehran's alleged support for the Syrian government, and armed groups in the Middle East.
