US President Donald Trump said on Monday June 24st the United States was imposing fresh sanctions on Iran, amid an escalation in tensions between the two countries, Reuters has reported.

Trump told reporters the sanctions, which will target Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, were in response to Tehran's downing of a U.S. drone last week.
