BRUSSELS (Dispatches) -- The European Union has imposed sanctions on eight Iranians, including the head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, the bloc said in its Official Journal on Monday.
The travel bans and asset freezes are the first EU sanctions on Iran since 2013. The bloc, which also hit three Iranian prisons with asset freezes, blacklisted IRGC chief General Hussein Salami. Iran has repeatedly rejected accusations by the West of human rights abuses.
