US accuses five Iranian groups over nuclear work
The U.S. Treasury on Tuesday said it imposed sanctions against five more Iranian entities it claims have provided support or materials to Iran's nuclear and missile programs.

The Treasury claimed the entities, designated as weapons of mass destruction proliferators, are controlled by or acting on behalf of previously Iranian entities responsible for uranium enrichment, nuclear development work.

Added to the Treasury's sanctions list were the Nuclear Research Center for Agriculture and Medicine at Karaj, the Eshfahan Nuclear Fuel Research and Production Center, Jabber Ibn Hayan, Safety Equipment Procurement Co and Joza Industrial Co. The move bans Americans from doing business with these entities and freezes any assets they may have under U.S. jursidiction.
