As reported in Reuters, the U.S. is imposing new sanctions on Iran in response to that country’s recent ballistic missile test.

The sanctions will affect 13 individuals and 12 entities including those based in United Arab Emirates, China and Lebanon. This is Trump’s first strike against Iran since his presidency began.

Larry speaks to Reuters Correspondent Arshad Mohammed for the latest on this move, and who the sanctions will impact.
