The United States says it has further tightened sanctions on Iran imposed in connection with its nuclear programme.

The US Treasury said it had blacklisted several companies and individuals that it believes are contributing to efforts to acquire nuclear weapons.

It also said it had identified several companies and banks acting as front organisations helping Iran to evade existing sanctions.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is purely for peaceful purposes.
