    The United States will begin imposing new sanctions on Iran from Tuesday.

    President Donald Trump reneged on the nuclear deal in May, even though there was no indication Tehran had violated it.

    The initial targets will be Iran's automotive sector and the trade in gold and other key metals.

    A second round of sanctions kick in on November 4.
