The US Senate has approved a bill to tighten sanctions against Iran in a bid to force Tehran to abandon its nuclear programme.

The new sanctions will target Iran's Revolutionary Guard and investigate its role in the export of oil from the country.

It will also make it mandatory for US-listed firms to disclose any Iran-related business to the authorities.

The move comes ahead of crucial talks on Iran's nuclear programme.
