U.S. sanctions seven Iranian individuals, two entities

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Thursday slapped sanctions on seven Iranian individuals and two entities, alleging involvement in either malicious cyber activities or enabling Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

The action, announced on the U.S. Treasury Department’s website, freezes any assets they may hold in the United States and prohibits U.S. individuals from doing business with them.

(Corrects first paragraph to say ballistic missile program, not nuclear program.)
