US to reimpose all sanctions on Iran on Monday

All measures lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal will be reimposed, despite Tehran's compliance with the agreement.

    In under 12 hours, the US will reimpose some of its toughest sanctions yet on Iran.

    All measures lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal will be reimposed, despite Tehran's compliance with the agreement. The move has sparked anger in Iran, where thousands of demonstrators chanted, "Down with the US," as they marked the 39th anniversary of university students storming the US embassy in Tehran.

    Rather than fearful, many Iranians were contemptuous of the US move, noting that the US was alone in abandoning the agreement and saying the Western nation is "in decline".
