Iran strikes back at US with more reciprocal sanctions

Tehran: Iran has sanctioned nine more US-linked businesses, organizations and people over America’s sanctions over its ballistic missile program.

Iran’s foreign ministry published a new sanctions list on its website Saturday, with nine added targets. The sanctions means Iran could seize local assets of the companies targeted and bar their employees from the country.

Targeted companies include Booz Allen Hamilton of McLean, Virginia; shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls Industries of Newport News, Virginia; cyber-security firm Kingfisher Systems of Falls Church, Virginia; and DynCorp International, also of McLean.

Booz Allen Hamilton and DynCorp declined to comment. The other firms did not immediately answer requests for comment.

The Trump administration in February sanctioned more than two dozen people and companies in retaliation for a ballistic missile test. Iran responded by announcing similar sanctions in March.
